With recent bout of severe weather, farmers are filing crop damage reports or exploring hail coverage options. Ihry Insurance agent Reed Ihry reminds farmers to keep in close communication with adjusters and agents. If there is potential crop loss due to hail, the loss can be listed on a multi-peril policy as well. “That way, they’re aware there might be certain sections that were impacted by a storm.” This time of year, Ihry adds adjusters will typically wait a few days to assess potential crop damage. “By then, the plants will be starting to show any signs of damage. With row crops, it’s typically a deferred process. Prior to harvest, adjusters will come back out, check the records and determine if the crop made a comeback or not.”
