To protect your insurance coverage on separate crop types, end uses, and inputs, it’s important to store and sell your production in a manner that can be easily distinguished, measured and sampled. If production is not stored and sold separately, production may be added together and/or pro-rated, which in turn may negatively affect any potential claim.

Storage Guidelines

  • Dryland input separate from irrigated input
  • Insured production separate from uninsured production, purchased production or production from a prior year
  • Crop type separate from another crop type (e.g. Hard Red Spring Wheat versus Canada Northern Hard Red Wheat or barley versus Canada Western Special Purpose Wheat)
  • Each end use separate from a different end use (e.g. commercial canola versus specialty oil canola, or commercial peas versus pedigreed peas)
  • Insured production of one producer separate from any production of another producer
  • Insured production from one contract separate from insured production of a like-type contract
  • Production of a registered variety eligible for grade loss separate from production of a deregistered or unregistered variety not eligible for grade loss
  • Production of an insured crop seeded prior to the recommended seeding date eligible for grade loss separate from production of insured crop seeded after the recommended seeding date and not eligible for grade loss (e.g. production of canola seeded up to May 31 vs. canola production seeded in June)
