FLORESVILLE -- Wilson County U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency Executive Director Stephen Svacina announced that producers can enroll in the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments (SURE) program for 2011 crop year losses. Under the 2008 Farm Bill, the SURE program authorizes assistance to farmers and ranchers who suffered crop losses caused by natural disasters occurring through Sept. 30, 2011.

“Eligible producers who experienced a 2011 crop loss can contact the Wilson County Farm Service Agency office to learn more about the SURE program,” Svacina said. “All eligible farmers and ranchers must sign up for 2011 SURE benefits before the June 7, 2013, deadline,” he said.

To qualify for a SURE payment, the producer’s operation must be located in a county that was declared a disaster for 2011 and have at least a 10 percent production loss that affects one crop of economic significance. Producers with agricultural operations located outside a disaster county are eligible for SURE benefits if they had a production loss greater or equal to 50 percent of the normal production on the farm.

In Texas, 213 counties received a primary Secretarial Disaster Designation and 41 counties received a contiguous Secretarial Disaster Designation during 2011. This means that all 254 counties in Texas can apply for SURE benefits as long as all other eligibility requirements are met.

To meet program eligibility requirements, producers must have obtained a policy or plan of insurance for all insurable crops through the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation and obtained Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program coverage on non-insurable crops, if available, from the Farm Service Agency. Eligible farmers and ranchers who meet the definition of a socially disadvantaged, limited resource, or beginning farmer or rancher do not have to meet this requirement. Forage crops intended for grazing are not eligible for SURE benefits.

For more information on SURE program eligibility requirements, contact the Wilson County Farm Service Agency office at 830-393-3411 or visit the website at http://www.fsa.usda.gov/sure.
