This endorsement to the hail policy provides coverage of loss due to wind that caused a flattening, bending or breaking of the stalk causing the ear to be unrecoverable by mechanical harvesting equipment. This does not include damage resulting in a barren plant or a partially filled or deformed ear that is recoverable by mechanical harvesting equipment.
The endorsement has a 5% disappearing deductible that disappears at 25%.
Insurance attaches when at least 50% of the corn has reached the 7th leaf stage. Coverage ends the earlier of:
- The date the crop is harvested;
- 12:01 a.m. November 1st for field corn and October 15th for seed corn and popcorn.
A unit consists of all acres of corn located in a separate identifiable field planted with a clear & discernable break in the planting pattern at the boundaries of the field.
