CONSERVATION COMPLIANCE

In order to receive premium assistance from the federal government for crop insurance, producers will have to comply with the highly erodible land and wetland conservation requirements that most already have to comply with as a result of participating in FSA and NRCS programs.

To comply, producers must fill out and sign form AD-1026.  If you have not already completed and submitted this for to the USDA, go to the USDA Service Center (Farm Service Agency) and file form AD-1026 certifying compliance.  The FSA and NRCS will communicate any additional actions that may be required for compliance.  

Producers who do not comply with conservation compliance can still purchase crop insurance, however, they will no longer be eligible to receive the government paid premium subsidy. 

Contact your local FSA/NRCS for more details.
