Frequently Asked Questions
How are crop insurance prices set?
Crop insurance prices are typically set through a combination of market forces and government regulation. They are often based on expected prices for specific crops, influenced by commodity market trends, and may incorporate measures of price volatility to account for potential fluctuations. Government subsidies, regulatory oversight, and crop-specific factors, such as historical yield data and regional risk assessments, also play a role in setting crop insurance prices.
When can I change my crop insurance coverage?
Crop insurance coverage changes can usually be made during specific periods known as “sales closing dates”. The specific timing and options for changing your crop insurance coverage may vary depending on the type of crop insurance you have. For instance, in Nebraska, the sales closing dates for soybeans and corn is March 15th.
We can help you determine the best policy for your operation, and we can ensure that you have the opportunity to make adjustments before the start of a new growing season or policy year.
What is yield trending?
Yield trending is used to account for the historical trend of increasing crop yields over time. It recognizes that, on average, farmers tend to improve their farming practices and achieve higher yields with advancements in technology, better crop management, and other factors.
It helps maintain the relevance of coverage levels in crop insurance. Without it, the insured yields might become outdated for modern agricultural practices. Insurance policies can incorporate yield trending factors to better reflect current and expected future yields. This helps to ensure coverage remains adequate and provides reasonable compensation to farmers.
What is the production reporting date?
The production reporting date for crop insurance is a critical deadline that farmers must adhere to when participating in a crop insurance program. It is the date by which farmers are required to report their actual crop production and acreage for the insured crops they have planted. This information is critical for determining the potential insurance indemnity payments in case of a loss or damage to the crops.
For example, in Nebraska, the production reporting date for corn and soybeans is April 29th.
What is livestock risk protection insurance?
Livestock Risk Protection (LRP) insurance is a government-subsidized insurance program designed to protect livestock producers from a decline in the market value of their animals. It allows producers to purchase coverage that pays out if the market price for their livestock falls below a certain threshold, providing a safety net for income protection.
What does a crop hail policy cover?
Crop hail insurance typically covers specific perils, primarily hail damage, to crops. The coverage includes damage to the leaves, stems, and fruits of the crop caused by hail. It also provides coverage for fire damage to insured crops in case a hailstorm leads to fires in the fields. Crop hail insurance is typically a separate policy from multi-peril crop insurance.
We can help you determine which policies are right for your operation.
