W.Va. Farmers Face March 15 Deadline to Buy Crop Insurance

  A deadline is approaching for West Virginia farmers to buy insurance for crops planted in the spring.

March 15 is the closing date to either buy crop insurance or change an existing policy.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Risk Management Agency says insurable spring-planted crops include corn, spring oats soybeans and tobacco.

Farmers also can buy insurance for loss of revenue resulting from a change in the harvest price for corn and soybeans from the projected price.

Crop insurance is sold through private crop insurance agents.
