The crop insurance prices are determined by averaging Chicago Board of Trade corn and soybeans and Intercontinental Exchange cotton futures contract settlement prices during a month-long price discovery period. Spring prices for corn, cotton and soybeans are determined by averaging the new-crop futures contract settlement prices December for corn, November for soybeans and December for cotton during the month-long February price discovery period. Following the spring price discovery period, farmers may purchase revenue protection policies that provide insurance against yield declines. In the event of a crop loss, a farmer purchasing a harvest price option policy would be indemnified at the higher of the spring planting price or the price during harvest.
Crop insurance coverage deadline coming up By Agriculture. One thing not to forget, though, is the December 10 deadline for the crop insurance period, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln ag economist says. The end of the insurance period is near, meaning farmers who are going to be turning in any losses need to do two very important things, says Doug Jose, UNL ag economist in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
Since the end of the insurance period is December 10, farmers that are not finished by then will need to ask for an extension if they plan to file any losses.
In addition, if losses are going to be filed due to loss in quality, such as moldy corn in a field, a strip must be left behind in the field so an insurance agent can make an assessment. The main thing farmers need to do is keep the lines of communication open with their insurance agent if they are thinking of filing a claim, Warren said.
Submit a notice of loss with your agent if you have not already done so and request additional time to harvest in order to protect your crop insurance coverage.
Continue to carry out normal and customary harvesting practices, if possible, utilizing available windows of opportunity.
Yield-based policies provide coverage for loss of quality review crop provisions for specificsreduced yields and revenue losses if chosen. If, for example, you are unable to harvest by the EOIP due to extreme wet or snowy conditions, your crop insurance company may allow additional time to harvest, if: You give timely notice of loss to your agent; and, It is determined and documented by the insurance company that the delay was due to an insured cause of loss; and, You demonstrate that harvest was not possible due to an insured cause of loss; and, The delay was not due to an uninsured cause of loss or because you did not have sufficient equipment or manpower to harvest.
