The coverage is a feature of these yield loss options and does not have to be selected. Producers are eligible for yield loss coverage the year the flooding occurs and will be compensated for damaged forage acres if they are no longer considered established the following spring, as a result of flooding. Compensation is paid at the forage establishment benefit rate per acre. Claims are subject to a five per cent deductible per legal land description.
Forage Restoration compensates a producers' loss of insured acres of established tame hay or alfalfa seed due to prolonged flooding.
