Crop Hail

Product Booklet

Most hailstorms last three to five minutes. In that time, Mother Nature can deal a crushing blow to your crops, your profits, and the future of your farming operation. Remove that risk today with Crop Hail coverage from Farmers Mutual Hail.


Crop Hail coverage provides protection against physical damage from hail and/or fire. Most FMH hail policies include extended coverages like fire and lightning, theft, vandalism and malicious mischief, and certain perils while in transit and storage at no additional cost to you.
 
Farmers Mutual Hail has a variety of hail coverages available depending on your specific needs: full/basic, dollar/deductible, and companion.

 

How Does It Work?

  • A dollar amount of coverage is selected by the producer. Options with different deductibles may be selected to permit a producer to partially self-insure for reduced premium costs.
  • Coverage is provided on an acre-by-acre basis, so that damage that occurs on only part of a farm may be eligible for payment when the rest of the field remains unaffected

What Are the Benefits?

  • Provides protection up to the actual value of your crop
  • If a grower has coverage and bumper crop yields or higher prices occur, coverage can be increased during the growing season to cover the value of the crop, unless the crops have been damaged.
  • Allows you to buy the protection you need for your crops in the spring while waiting until fall to pay the premium
  • No value clause
  • No replant clause – FMH pays the loss (any unused insurance rolls over to replanted-like crop)
  • Catastrophe allowance offered on most policy types
  • Termination date of all coverages is December 31 (see policy provisions for exceptions)
  • Substitute crop coverage
  • No pro rata clause

Coverage Plans

Full/Basic Coverage
A policy that gives the insured a payment that equals the percent of loss multiplied by the insured value per acre.

Deductible/Dollar Plans
A policy that requires the insured to meet a percent deductible before loss payments begin. Once the loss exceeds a certain percent, this provision will no longer apply.

Companion Plans
A policy that requires the insured to meet a percent deductible before loss payments begin. Once payment begins, the company will only have liability for a selected factor times the percent of loss, not to exceed 100%.
