Oregon’s U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley plans to introduce an amendment to the farm bill that would improve crop insurance for organic farmers.  Currently organic farmers, when they file an insurance claim, they are not paid based on the price of the organic crop.  But instead on the non-organic equivalent, which is considerably lower.

Senator Merkley's amendment would require USDA to set appropriate payment levels for organic farmers within three years.
