NSA is working with RMA to have trend-adjusted actual production history yields (Trend-Adjusted APH) for sunflower in all counties in all states that have sunflower crop insurance coverage. This would give sunflower producers another option to update their actual production history (APH) when making crop insurance decisions. Trend-Adjusted APH is available in 2019 in most counties in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota. It is available in some counties in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska and Texas.
NSA is also requesting the RMA to add quality adjustment factors for Sclerotinia and dark roast for sunflower varieties bred specifically for medium seed size for hulling such as conoils in order to provide insurability for these quality factors for the 2020 crop year.
