(Press Release) (WAUSAU, WISCONSIN), April 4, 2012 – Wisconsin Farm Service Agency reminds producers that the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments (SURE) program 2010 crop year sign-up deadline ends June 1, 2012.

Producers who suffered losses due to natural disasters during the 2010 crop year may be eligible to receive SURE assistance.

To be eligible for SURE a farm must have:
• At least a 10 percent production loss adjusted for quality on a crop of economic significance;
• A policy or plan of insurance under the Federal Crop Insurance Act or the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) for all economically significant crops;
• Been physically located in a county that was declared a primary disaster county or contiguous county by the Agriculture Secretary under a Secretarial Disaster Designation. Without a Secretarial Disaster Designation, individual producers may be eligible if the actual production on the farm is less than 50 percent of the normal production on the farm due to a natural disaster.

In Wisconsin, the following counties were determined primary or contiguous for 2010:

Barron Buffalo
Chippewa Clark
Door Dunn

Producers considered socially disadvantaged, a beginning farmer or rancher, or a limited resource farmer may be eligible for SURE without a policy or plan of insurance or NAP coverage.
