What is the insurers stance

On prevented planting if the acres are ready and the farmer has too much to do? In a shortened planting season one 24 row planter may not be able to get to all fields at once. Does insurance cover farmer incompetence?

If too many fields are the problem, he will rent an extra planter to keep the guy who doesn't own one from renting it.  :smileyhappy:

 

Maybe there should be a minimum equipment inventory to qualify for crop insurance.

 

Morning Kraft !!

Re: What is the insurers stance

Just absentee landowners that hire the work done will be denied coverage for unplanted acres as they were just home posting on the internet when they should have been "gettin er done"

60% of the time, it works every time.

Thanks for the laugh boys. after working some steers to put out on grass this morning, I needed that! Stomped, kicked, and butted, but at least none of them tried to bite me!

Re: What is the insurers stance

Sounds good! i can buy a planter and get you to help me pay for it.

 

I sold some corn and beans today! The old piggy bank was running a little short. I suppose I ought to be ashamed selling $7.13 corn and $15.03 beans.

Re: What is the insurers stance

Whatever the motivation those are good prices------ neither of us can deny that.  Good move.

 

The transportation costs on our shared planter might be a little high but we can probably make it work..,......

Re: What is the insurers stance

You wanna swing by my place with it while you are transporting and help me finish up beans? I don't know if the last couple of fields will ever dry out. More rain on it's way for the tonight and the weekend. Frustrating. Very frustrating. It isn't too small of a planter or to few machines that is the problem. It is muck.

Re: What is the insurers stance

I think 'normal practices' covers it, or at least makes things pretty vague.

 

I know a sizable farm operation around here was denied because they went into notill (that didn't turn out well) and this was not the farmer's 'normal practice.' The farmer's normal practice established the yield history being used I suppose.

 

If a farmer normally used a 12 row planter to establish his history I'm not sure insurance would have grounds to deny.
