Crop Damage Compensation Claims
It is important to contact your local customer service office prior to harvesting or feeding and grazing any damaged crop so it can be assessed. Compensation will be based on the yield loss of the crop in the damaged area.
If you must harvest, feed or graze before an adjuster can inspect the crop, the entire damaged area plus a representative portion of the undamaged crop must be left for inspection. Annual crops should be standing or left in swaths. If you have not made every effort to complete harvest of annual crops in a timely fashion, compensation may not be paid. Grain crop claims will not be paid after November 15 or when harvest was generally completed in the area. If you are unable to harvest, feed or graze and further damage occurs after inspection, call your customer service office for reassessment
