How often can I change my crop insurance coverage?
You may change your crop insurance coverage levels once a year, as long as you do so by the sales closing date. If you don't make any changes, you will receive the same level of coverage as the previous year.
Should I continue to care for my drought-damaged crop?
Yes, producers with crop insurance that will harvest the crop should continue to care for the crop using generally recognized practices. You must protect the crop from further damage. Failure to maintain and protect the crop after drought damage may result in forfeiting your claims payment.
What should I do when my crops are damaged?
Contact your insurance agent within 72 hours of crop loss or damage. You should also continue to care and protect your crop using good farming practices. Do not destroy your crop or use it for alternative purposes without first receiving the approval of your insurance provider.
