SCIC conducts farm practice surveys to examine the farming practices of selected customers, monitoring farming methods on traditional and non-traditional crops and verifying the use of recommended farming practices. You may be selected for a farm practice survey because of a history of repeated or unusual claims (high dockage claims, repeated uninsured causes of losses applied, etc.).
If you have been selected for a farm practice survey, a Crop Insurance adjuster may complete up to three inspections during the crop year. You will be asked to provide crop input information (i.e. seeding rates and chemical applications), the grain or forage type, variety, seeding dates and seeding methods. The adjuster will review your efforts to prevent and control losses. If the farm practice survey finds uninsured causes of loss, your potential claim for the year will be adjusted accordingly.
