Crop Insurance Update: USDA Corrects Definition of “Limited Resource Farmer”

On August 9, 2016, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) published notice in the Federal Register that the agency was issuing a final rule/correcting amendment to replace an invalid link previously appearing in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) (81 FR 52590).

According to the Federal Register notice, as previously published, 7 CFR 457.8 contained an outdated link appearing within the definition of the term “limited resource farmer.”

To correct the problem, the 7 CFR 457.8 definition of “limited resource farmer” now contains a revised link and appears as follows:

Limited resource farmer. Has the same meaning as the term defined by USDA at or successor Web site.

The effective date for the amendment to the 7 CFR 457.8 definition of “limited resource farmer” is August 9, 2016.
