Crop Insurance 101: Replant Coverage Explained

(may vary – check with your agent)

Notify the company and obtain authorization BEFORE destroying initially planted acreage and replanting the same crop.

-Replanted acreage must not have been originally planted before the earliest planting date.
-Must consist of at least 20 acres or 20% of the insured planted acreage.
-Crop damage must be severe enough that the remaining stand won’t produce 90% of the production guarantee.

Maximum Replanting Payment:
Corn: 8 bushels x $4.66 (spring price) / bu x share
Soybeans: 3 bushels x $11.55 (spring price) / bu x share

Replanting Conditions: If eligible and field conditions are favorable, replanting is practical up to 10 days after the final planting date.

Acreage Reporting: Use the original plant date for replanted acres on your report. Payments are processed after the acreage report is completed.
