Green Snap

Product Booklet

A windstorm can flatten your fields in a matter of minutes. Green Snap protects against losses from wind damage to your crops so that you’re financially covered even when your fields can’t be harvested.

Green Snap (GS) is an optional Crop Hail endorsement that provides protection against the severing or breaking of the stalk at a joint above the brace roots and below the ear as a result of natural wind and will prevent an ear from forming or prevent the harvesting of the ears by normal harvesting equipment.

How Does It Work?
  • Three Green Snap deductibles are available: 0% Deductible/Basic, 10%, or IP2F
  • Three policy combinations with Crop Hail are available:
       • Basic hail coverage with either 0% Deductible/Basic or 10% GS
       • Deductible hail coverage with either 0% Deductible/Basic or 10% GS
       • Companion hail coverage with 0% Deductible/Basic, 10%, or IP2F GS

What Are the Benefits?

  • Protects against loss of yield
  • Protects against losses of wind damage so that you are financially covered even if your fields can’t be harvested
  • Green Snap losses are netted against any prior hail damage
