Home > News > 2020 Replant Reminders

During this time of wet weather leading into replant season, we pledge to make doing business with us a positive experience. Our team of dedicated ProAg adjusters stand ready to assist. Since many of us are farmers and ranchers ourselves, we understand the urgency around replanting acres during this season. We are ready to deliver trusted, quality claims service 24/7 with industry-leading turnaround times and fast, accurate claims.

If you have acres that need to be replanted, take advantage of the 2020 crop year changes in self-certification replants. With this unique type of replant, an adjuster doesn’t have to show up to the farm and the claim is resolved even faster and provides a great solution for social distancing. For the 2020 crop year, you may self-certify up to 100 acres per unit to be replanted in lieu of the current 50-acre limitation. Additionally, if an enterprise unit structure or basic unit structure was selected, you may self-certify up to 100 acres on each of the underlying unit databases that qualify for separate optional units, that comprise the enterprise or basic unit.

NOTE: Before replanting, contact your trusted ProAg agent or assigned ProAg claims representative. No replanting is allowed until consent to replant is granted from ProAg. This includes regular replants as well as those that qualify for self-certification.
