SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The final regulation that is the subject of this correction revised 
the Common Crop Insurance Regulations, Basic Provisions and applicable 
Crop Provisions, including the Cotton Crop Insurance Provisions. In 
addition, FCIC revised various Crop Provisions, including the Macadamia 
Nut Crop Insurance Provisions, to correct specific references to the 
revised Common Crop Insurance Regulations, Basic Provisions. It was 
published March 30, 2010 (75 FR 15778-15891).

Need for Correction

    As published, the final regulation contained errors which may prove 
to be misleading and which need to be clarified. Section 10(d) of the 
Cotton Crop Insurance Provisions mistakenly included language that is 
no longer accurate. Language in section 10(d) referring to the quality 
adjustment parameters listed in the Special Provisions and to the date 
the last bale from the unit is classed or delivered is not necessary 
since the basis for quality adjustment is the Upland Cotton National 
Average Loan Rate determined by the Farm Service Agency. Additionally, 
the use of the word ``quotation'' in the term ``price quotation'' is no 
longer accurate or necessary. FCIC is replacing the term ``price 
quotation'' in section 10(d) with the term ``price.''
    The introductory text of the Macadamia Nut Crop Insurance 
Provisions mistakenly included a reference to the 2011 and succeeding 
crop years. The applicability date for the final rule stated ``The 
changes will apply for the 2011 and succeeding crop years for all crops 
with a 2011 contract change date on or after April 30, 2010, and for 
2012 and succeeding crop years for all crops with a 2011 contract 
change date prior to April 30, 2010.'' The 2011 contract change date 
for the Macadamia Nut Crop Insurance Provisions is August 31, 2010, 
which is prior to April 30, 2011. Therefore, this specific provision 
should reference the 2012 and succeeding crop years.
