Planting a Second Crop on Prevented Planting (PP) Ground
Insureds may plant a second crop for harvesting, haying or grazing on the PP ground.
- The second crop must be planted after the later of the final planting date or the end of the late planting period (for the initial planted crop).
- The insured will receive 35% of the PP guarantee and pay 35% of the original premium on the prevented crop, unless DC requirements are met. The insured will be limited to 35% unless no second crop is subsequently planted or the insured does qualify for double cropping. Payment on first crop prevented planted is not restored if a second crop is planted but does not sustain a loss.
- PP acreage where cover crops are hayed or grazed prior to the end of the final planting date or the late planting period, if available, will not be eligible for a PP payment.
- Second crops, planted on PP ground, must be insured if the crop meets insurability requirements and is insured on the policy. Cover Crop means a crop generally recognized by agricultural experts as agronomically sound for the area for erosion control or other purposes related to conservation or soil improvement.
