Regarding your crop insurance and things to keep in mind during harvest:
2023 MPCI Billing Change
Due to drought conditions in some regions, RMA announced that the MPCI premium payments could be deferred for 60 days. Payments need to be postmarked by Nov. 30th to avoid interest penalties.
A Notice of Loss should be turned in within 72 hours of noticing that there may be a problem. A harvest loss claim must be submitted no later than 15 days after harvest of the crop is completed.
Please contact us ASAP if you plan to mix this years’ crop with grain from a previous years’ production. A notice must be submitted to the insurance company so an adjuster can measure the grain.
Chopping Silage / taking crop to another use
If you are chopping corn for silage or take a crop to another use (haying small grains for example), you will need authorization from the company and will want to get an appraisal for loss/APH purposes. If you fail to get authorization from the company you will be assessed your guarantee on those acres
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office.
