USDA RMA has released the spring base prices for crop insurance. Corn = $4.62. Soybeans = $11.36. Grain Sorghum = $4.46. These prices are used to determine the insurance guarantee and premium. These prices are down approximately 15-18% from the 2013 prices, depending on crop. More than ever producers will need to evaluate input cost versus coverage.

Cover Crops & Changes in Crop Insurance
To ensure that USDA policies are coordinated and up to date with evolving cover crop practices, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) guidelines now state that RMA (Risk Management Agency) will develop crop insurance provisions with respect to cover crops. Research literature, plant growth and soil hydrology models, and input from national/local experts in cover crop management provided the basis for developing cover crop termination guidelines. This achieved many conservation benefits while minimizing risk of reducing yield to the following crop due to soil water use.
As we are in the early stages of the New Year, 2014 feels different. It seems that the winds of change may be blowing.

Consumer confidence is higher than we have seen in years, and the employment situation in the United States continues to improve. Economists are starting to talk about housing in a positive light once again.
