The rule includes the changes to the payment limitation and native sod provisions and clarifies when NAP coverage is available for crops when certain crop insurance is available under the Federal Crop Insurance Act.

This rule also makes some additional minor changes to clarify existing NAP requirements and improve program integrity.
