Dec. 10 is deadline for crop-insurance period PDF Print E-mail

LINCOLN (AP) — A University of Nebraska-Lincoln agricultural economist reminds producers that Dec. 10 is the deadline for the crop-insurance period.

Doug Jose says farmers who aren’t finished with their harvest by the deadline will need to ask for an extension if they plan to file any losses.

If losses are going to be filed due to loss in quality, such as moldy corn in a field, a strip must be left behind in the field so an insurance agent can make an assessment.
