Contact Crop Insurance Agent Regarding Late Harvest

Agri-View recently posted an article that’s very important for farmers to read as this challenging harvest continues. With the weather causing a late, slow-progressing harvest, the article highlights the importance of contacting your crop insurance agent if you won’t be able to complete harvest by early December.

Purdue University economist Bill Edwards is quoted in the article, saying the crop insurance deadline for corn and soybeans in Midwest states is Dec. 10. “However, producers may request additional time to complete harvest. Insurance companies may grant an extension when timely notice is given to the agent and the delay is due to an insured cause, such as wet weather or snowfall.” For more information, please read the article.
