The Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation (SCIC) is reminding Crop Insurance customers to submit their Seeded Acreage Reports and Stored Grain Declarations by June 25.

Accurate completion of the Seeded Acreage Report and Stored Grain Declaration will reduce errors in premiums, coverage levels and claim calculations. Stored grain must be reported to avoid old production being counted as new, in the event of a claim.

For producers who have acres that are too wet to seed, June 25 is the deadline to file Unseeded Acreage (USA) claims. Traditional wet acres subject to flooding or continually wet acres, such as permanent sloughs, that remain wet or underwater in a year of normal moisture are not eligible. All claims are subject to an inspection.

Customers can submit Seeded Acreage Reports and Stored Grain Declarations to SCIC by phone, mail, fax or by visiting a local Crop Insurance office. Seeded Acreage Reports and Stored Grain information can also be completed online through CropConnect from a computer or mobile device. Producers who believe they are eligible for an Unseeded Acreage claim, must call their Crop Insurance office by June 25.

Honey producers insuring their crops are reminded the deadline to report their number of hives and stored honey is also June 25, 2014.

For more information, producers can contact their local Crop Insurance office or call
1-888-935-0000.
