Insurance Implications for Late-Planted Corn

The crop insurance “final planting date” for corn across most of Kansas is May 25.  Corn planted after this date faces a declining level of coverage.  For further details, check out the May 19 eUpdate from KSU’s Department of Agronomy, which also discusses research on one’s chances of avoiding freeze damage for late-planted corn.

Wheat Insurance Options

Monte Vandeveer discusses crop insurance options for wheat growers in western Kansas whose stands were adversely affected by the freezing temperatures and/or snowstorm that struck the High Plains in late April. He says that producers who incurred crop losses have some flexibility in how they claim the indemnity on that wheat, as well as how they insure any second crop they would plant on that acreage.
