In 2011, Becker County was contiguous to other counties that had Secretarial Disaster declarations. Therefore, Becker County producers would need at least a 10 percent crop production loss on one crop of economic significance to qualify.

Payments would be earned if the total farm revenue (value of all crops in all counties) falls below the SURE guarantee. The SURE guarantee runs a close parallel to the level of crop insurance coverage purchased.

If interested, you may call or stop by the Becker County FSA Office to file your application.
