The American Soybean Association says the USDA’s decision to expand access to double cropping insurance was welcome news.
Illinois farmer Stan Born, a director with ASA, says the expansion will help increase food supplies domestically and abroad. “It allows us to get two crops off the same land in the same year and with less risk,” Born said. “We’ll be able to utilize crop benefits and crop insurance.”
He tells Brownfield double cropping provides environmental benefits.
