LUBBOCK — National Sorghum Producers commends the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Risk Management Agency (RMA) for creating enhanced coverage for irrigated grain sorghum producers. The new coverage will be effective November 30, 2022, for the upcoming 2023 crop year.

“This expanded coverage for irrigated sorghum producers is the culmination of a decade of work between NSP, Congress and RMA, and we thank the agency for continuing to work with our industry to improve coverage options for sorghum producers,” NSP CEO Tim Lust said. “Improved rates and yields for sorghum producers will offer a greater level of aid and new opportunity for the 2023 growing season.”
