USDA Hosting Final Workshop on Nursery Insurance Option

USDA recently expanded its Nursery Value Select Crop Insurance Program to all counties in all states. The Risk Management Agency is encouraging interested nursery producers to learn more about the program through an informational workshop.

It will be valuable for producers in the newly expanded areas and especially for the Nursery Field Grown and Container crop insurance program, which ends beginning with the 2026 crop year. The final Nursery Value Select workshop is on Thursday, July 18, at 2 pm Central Time. Nursery Value Select is a pilot program enabling nursery producers to select the dollar amount of coverage that best fits their management needs. Its expansion is part of the RMA’s efforts to provide insurance options for a broader group of producers, including specialty crop producers.

Nursery Value Select was first available in 2021, and producers insured more than $460 million in liabilities in 2023. For more information, go to usda.gov.
