It is time to complete your acreage report for 2018 spring crops (rice, corn, milo, soybeans, cotton, peanuts, etc.).
These reports are due July 16, 2018.
Once you have finished planting, be sure to certify your crops at the FSA office. When you finish certifying, ask for a Producer Print- 578. Please bring this copy of your 578 to our office. These forms can also be faxed or emailed to John Minor Crop Insurance.
You do not need to wait until you have replanted crops to certify. For insurance purposes, report the date of the original planting, not the replant date.
If you are unable to certify by 7/16/18, please call our office. We will be glad to help you complete your acreage report to ensure coverage is bound timely.
If you need to file a prevented planting claim and have not contacted our office about this matter, please call immediately. If you plant after the final plant date, there is reduced coverage for most crops. All planted acres and prevented planted acres must be shown on your Acreage Report (insurable or uninsurable – this includes failed crops).
Keep in mind, the name of the entity, the people sharing in the entity, the share of the crop, the irrigation practice, and the number of acres planted should be the same at the FSA (ASCS) office as it is on your insurance policy.
Damage to your crop should be reported promptly. Do not harvest or destroy your crop before alerting us of a possible claim. An adjuster must be contacted prior to replanting any crops.
If interested, call us about a crop-hail policy which provides protection from hail, fire, lightning, transit, and storage losses.
Be sure you have an AD-1026 form on file by Acreage Reporting in order to be eligible for premium subsidy.
We appreciate your business!
