Make sure you are covered. Report what you have seeded.

The deadline for Crop Insurance customers to submit their Seeded Acreage Reports and Stored Grain Declarations is fast approaching. The Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation (SCIC) is reminding producers of the peace of mind their insurance can provide when Seeded Acreage Reports are completed and filed by the June 25 deadline. By completing and submitting the required information by the deadline, producers are ensuring they have accurate Crop Insurance coverage.

Stored grain must also be reported by the June 25 deadline. Failing to report old production can result in future claims being reduced as old production will be calculated as new.

Submitting a seeded acreage report and stored grain declaration is simple when producers file online using CropConnect. CropConnect provides secure access, from a home computer or mobile device, allowing producers to submit information online as they seed or when time is most convenient. Through the new land naming feature on CropConnect, producers can now organize and report their acres by adding field names, linking multiple fields together or splitting fields.

SCIC understands the weather in Saskatchewan varies across the province. Producers with land that is too wet to seed must call their local Crop Insurance office by the June 25 deadline to file an unseeded acreage claim. For producers with crops that fail to adequately establish, the deadline to submit an establishment benefit claim is June 20. If a producer wants to reseed or work down a portion of the insured crop, they must contact their local Crop Insurance office immediately, as an adjuster must inspect those acres before reseeding can occur.

Customers can also submit Seeded Acreage Reports and Stored Grain Declarations to SCIC by phone, mail, fax or by visiting a local Crop Insurance office.
For more information, producers can contact their local Crop Insurance office, call 1-888-935-0000 or go to saskcropinsurance.com.
