Heritage Insurance Services owner and CEO Tyler Bjerke says quality losses are part of changes in crop insurance next year. “Last year, the wheat growers spearheaded a quality endorsement issue where they were able to buy back their quality they lost in falling numbers. Since then, we’ve been able to expand that to other crops. Almost all crops in North Dakota will be able to buy back their quality, with the exception of dry beans and sugarbeets. Quality will be big for 2021 and there will be some prevent plant changes.” Prevent plant is still part of the story for Northern Plains farmers this year, but overall, harvest is making progress.
