Annual crops planted for forage production are increasing throughout Nebraska. Historically, this production would have fallen outside of normal crop insurance coverage options. However, in 2014, the Annual Forage Insurance Plan was offered for the first time from the USDA - Risk Management Agency (RMA) as a pilot program for the states of Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. It was expanded to include Colorado in 2016.
