Crop Insurance Decisions Have to Be Made by End of the Day March 15, 2019

Thu, 14 Mar 2019 15:28:56 CDT

Crop Insurance Decisions Have to Be Made by End of the Day March 15, 2019 The deadline is here- the close of business on Friday March 15th is the deadline to enroll in Crop Insurance for Spring Planted Crops. Scott Bulling with Superior Crop Insurance says farmers are infamous for waiting until the last minute- and they now have no more time to sign up for most of the spring planted crops we grow in Oklahoma.

Bulling says that you don't have to lnow exactly which crop you may end up planting spring- or even how many acres will be planted- that is all declared in about three months from now- but to protect your production- March 15th is the deadline.

Bulling also tells Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays that March 15th is a very important deadline for wheat producers, who may be opting out of grain production and plan to graze, bale or chop their wheat acres this spring. If you have coverage on your wheat acres- and you decide by March 15 that you are not going to havest for grain on certain fields- you can back out of crop insurance on those acres and save 60% of the premium.

Bulling says for both of these deadlines- if you are not sure you have made all the choices needed to be made- a call to your crop insurance agent is in order.

Hays talked with Bulling on Thursday afternoon- you can click on the LISTEN BAR below to listen to Scott Bulling's comments on both of these decisions that must be dealt with by end of the business day on Friday, March 15th.
