Crop insurance changes were highlighted during the Countryside Insurance Agency annual farmer meeting on Tuesday. A Quality Loss Option is now available and if selected, farmers can improve actual production history for years when they suffered a quality loss. “That’s a nice option,” said Kayla Pederson, agent, Countryside Insurance Agency. “The best example of that was in 2019 when we had falling numbers on wheat. Farmers can go back and get that higher yield put in the database.” Another change for 2021 is prevented plant. Farmers can now be paid for prevent plant based on a crop other than the crop planted on the acreage under certain conditions.
