Crop Insurance provides coverage for both yield and quality loss on insured crops. It is important producers stay in contact with SCIC about their crop quality to identify potential claims due to quality loss.
If a producer wants to put their crop to an alternate use, they should contact their local SCIC office.
Livestock Producers: For inquiries about nitrates, quality of bales and winter feed plans, contact the Ministry of Agriculture’s Livestock and Feed Specialists or the Agriculture Knowledge Centre at 1-866-457-2377.
Filing a Claim
Contact your local office to file a claim. Deadline to register is November 15.
Extension of Insurance
An extension of insurance provides coverage on insured crops over winter. Producers are encouraged to contact their local SCIC office as soon as possible to discuss their options.
The deadline to request an extension of insurance is November 15.
For AgriStability participants, losses due to crop quality are factored into each individual’s AgriStability coverage. Whether it is a loss due to reduced price for a lower graded crop or reduced value of inventory due to harvesting a poor quality crop, the AgriStability Program will include those factors in a producer’s benefit calculation.
For questions about AgriStability coverage or interim benefits, please call the AgriStability Call Centre at 1-866-270-8450.
Wildlife Damage Compensation
The Wildlife Damage Compensation Program is available to all Saskatchewan producers who suffer crop or livestock losses due to wildlife. Producers do not need to be a Crop Insurance customer to be eligible for compensation.
Throughout the harvest season, SCIC monitors wildlife damage phone calls over the weekends. Producers are encouraged to contact SCIC as soon as damage is detected.
The Farm Stress Line (1-800-667-4442) is available to Saskatchewan producers. This is a 24/7 confidential service providing support to farmers and ranchers who experience difficulties on the farm. Whether it is information, conflict or crisis, the first step is communication.
