USDA Reminds Producers to Pay Their Crop Insurance Premiums by January…

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE USDA Reminds Producers to Pay Their Crop Insurance Premiums by January 31 The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Risk Management Agency (RMA) is reminding producers that their crop insurance premiums for the 2019 crop year are due January 31. Under this change, policies that do not have the premium paid by January 31, 2020, will have interest attach on February 1, calculated from the date of the premium billing notice.USDA had deferred to January 31, 2020, the accrual of interest on 2019 crop year insurance premiums for most policies with a premium billing date of August 15, 2019, to help the large number of farmers and ranchers affected by extreme weather in 2019.“At USDA, we understood the challenges that farmers and ranchers faced due to inclement weather last year, so we deferred the interest to give producers additional time to pay their premium, which is now due on January 31,” RMA Administrator Martin Barbre said. “We urge producers to make their premium payment on time to ensure they don’t get charged interest back to their premium billing notice date.”The extended interest deferral built on other steps taken by USDA to support farmers and ranchers impacted by flooding and other disasters. As of January 13, RMA has paid roughly $8.1 billion in overall claims for the 2019 crop year.Producers are encouraged to contact their crop insurance agents for more information or assistance.

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES – The Dodgers were headed for certain defeat Saturday when the baseball gods dropped a gift from the sky. Kiké Hernandez hit a deep but catchable fly ball to Giants left fielder Hunter Pence. Inexplicably, Pence looked around in a stupor. He couldn’t see the ball.By the time Pence turned around to find the ball lying on the outfield grass, Hernandez was well on his way to third base – scored a triple. It was the first hit Johnny Cueto allowed in six breathtaking innings, and it opened the door for a four-run rally.Unfortunately for the Dodgers, the gift expired after one inning. They couldn’t muster any hits before Hernandez’s “triple” or after Justin Turner’s three-run home run in a 5-4 loss at Dodger Stadium.Cueto (1-0) finished with a deceptively poor pitching line: 5 2/3 innings pitched, four runs allowed. The veteran right-hander faced one batter above the minimum for five innings, with only a Chris Taylor walk standing between Cueto and perfection. In his 300th career start, Cueto won his 127th career game.“One of the biggest keys with Cueto is to get guys on base, to get him out of the windup so he can’t do any of the – whatever you want to call it, the quick pitch, the turning and messing with guys’ timing,” Turner said. “When you get him in the stretch it’s a little bit easier to get to him. Unfortunately it took us a lot longer tonight to get him in the stretch.”For at least a portion of the night, Cueto battled a physical ailment with his right foot. He walked off the field limping after the fifth inning. He limped off the mound after getting Mookie Betts to pop out in the sixth inning. Giants manager Gabe Kapler then visited Cueto briefly, but allowed him to remain in the game.“I think through five innings, Cueto could’ve shut anybody out,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “The stuff kept us off-balance. Everything was at the hull of the knee.”Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw (1-1) allowed four runs in 4 1/3 innings, including three on solo home runs. Austin Slater became the seventh player to hit two home runs in a game against Kershaw. The Giants became just the 11th team (ninth in the regular season) to homer three times against him in Kershaw’s 13-year career. It all added up to a forgettable start, a stark contrast to last Sunday in Phoenix. In his 2020 debut, Kershaw took a no-hitter into the fourth inning against the Diamondbacks and allowed only three weak singles.“I thought at times the stuff was really good; the fastball command at times was good,” Roberts said of Kershaw. “At times the slider was good, curveball good. There were just counts, pitches that he left up and out over the plate, and they took advantage of ‘em.”The Giants took an aggressive approach to Kershaw, who walked one batter and reached 3-ball counts against only two others. The tactic worked: San Francisco squared up Kershaw’s pitches almost at will, hitting six balls in play at 100 mph or more. Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Kershaw allowed triple-digit contact only twice.Kershaw said the approach didn’t take him by surprise.“My command wasn’t quite as good tonight,” he said. “I just had a couple rough innings there.”Slater led off the game with a sharp line drive to left-center field that Cody Bellinger dove to catch. The Giants ultimately loaded the bases in the first inning, but Kershaw retired Pence on a flare to shallow right field to end the threat.In the third inning, Slater squared up a 92-mph fastball for his first home run of the game. With one out, Mike Yastrzemski did the same.The Giants were still ahead 2-0 in the fifth inning when Slater pounced on a hanging slider for his second home run – his 11th in a career that began in 2017. Kershaw allowed back-to-back doubles to Donovan Solano and Yastrzemski to score the Giants’ fourth run, and was promptly removed from the game. Brusdar Graterol stopped the bleeding by retiring Evan Longoria and Wilmer Flores on groundouts.Graterol allowed the eventual game-winning run in the sixth inning. The hard-throwing right-hander allowed a single to Pence and walked Darin Ruf. With Pence on third base and one out, Mauricio Dubon hit a sacrifice fly to right field, allowing Pence to tag up and score.“We didn’t get too many hits tonight, but certainly I know Clayton expects more from (himself).”After Hernandez’s triple gave the Dodgers their first hit, Austin Barnes hit a ground ball slowly enough for Hernandez to score from third.Cueto walked Joc Pederson. With one out, he walked Bellinger to bring Turner to the plate.Turner’s first home run of the season landed softly on an advertisement blanketing the left field bleachers. The Dodgers, no longer in jeopardy of being shut out, suddenly trailed 5-4.Cueto’s night ended there, but Tony Watson (one-third of an inning), Tyler Rogers (two innings) and Trevor Gott (one inning) closed the door without allowing another hit. Gott was credited with the save.“With our offense, we expect to score more runs than we did tonight,” Turner said. “Clayton didn’t have his best stuff. I thought they had a really good approach against him tonight, stayed to the middle of the field. We’ve got to pick him up there. So many times, he keeps us in games, and when he doesn’t have his best stuff, we need to do a better job scoring more runs for him.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
