Thinking about planting your corn and soybeans early? Will you still have coverage?
Yes, you would still have coverage on your MPCI policy. However, if you plant corn before April 11th and soybeans before April 21st, you give up the replant coverage in your crop policy. Only the replant coverage is given up; yield/revenue coverage is still in place. Replant coverage is 8 bu. x $3.88 = $31.04 for corn and 3 bu. x $9.17 = $27.51 for soybeans.
