NAWG Tells Farm Bill Conferees- Do No Harm to Crop Insurance

Fri, 25 Oct 2013 06:27:14 CDT

NAWG Tells Farm Bill Conferees- Do No Harm to Crop Insurance The National Association of Wheat Growers wrote House and Senate agriculture leaders and farm bill conferees this week to stress wheat growers' priorities going into the official conference process. The letter urged conferees to maintain a strong federal crop insurance system and explicitly opposed provisions in the Senate-passed bill to link conservation compliance requirements or apply means testing to the insurance program. NAWG supports establishing farm-level protection within Title I and urged committee members to ensure that any reference price does not distort the market or impact planting decisions.

The letter offered strong support for the Market Access Program (MAP), the Foreign Market Development (FMD) program, international food aid programs and the web of public agricultural research that supports wheat variety development. NAWG also voiced support for provisions in the House-passed farm bill that would eliminate duplicative regulation of pesticide applications under the Clean Water Act and increase the capacity for on-farm storage qualifying for self-certification and exemption under the Environmental Protection Agency's Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) regulation.
