Farmers are preparing for the March 15th crop insurance deadline.
Compeer Financial crop insurance officer Dan Kendall says projected new crop prices will be considerably lower compared to a year ago.
“Last year for corn we had $5.91, this year we’re going to probably be hopefully in that $4.80 range. So less coverage, less dollars out there.”
Speaking to Brownfield at last week’s Wisconsin Corn Soy Pork Expo, he said producers might be encouraged by lower premiums.
