Post-Application Coverage Endorsement PACE

Post-Application Coverage Endorsement (PACE) provides coverage for producers who use this practice to save money and promotes appropriate conservation practices.

What is Post-Application Coverage Endorsement (PACE)?

The Post Application Coverage Endorsement (PACE) provides supplemental coverage when a producer is prevented from post/split applying nitrogen in the 2-3 week V3-V10 corn growth stages due to field conditions created by weather.

Where is PACE Crop Insurance Available?

PACE supplemental crop insurance is available for non-irrigated corn in select counties in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. See the list of 2022 counties here.

Who is Eligible for PACE Coverage?

You must:

  • Have an underlying insurance policy of Yield Protection, Revenue Protection, or Revenue Protection with Harvest Price Exclusion with coverage at the additional coverage level
  • Use a split application of nitrogen practice
  • Have documentation supporting the purchase of nitrogen for the split-application of nitrogen practice
  • Record on the PACE acreage report:
    • the acreage on which a split application of nitrogen practice was intended and
    • the acreage on which the pre-application of nitrogen was actually applied
  • Have been physically prevented from applying the post-application of nitrogen during the insurance period due to weather and field conditions to make a claim

How Do You Report PACE Acreage?

For PACE, the acreage report must include, by insured unit:

  • The intended total nitrogen application rate pre- and post-apply
  • The actual total nitrogen application rate pre- and post-apply
  • The number of acres in each unit in which a split-application practice was used and
  • The actual planting date for each unit

PACE requires a Producer Nitrogen Report to be submitted in the event of a possible loss, regarding nitrogen practices and applications. You must have acceptable records that support the information from the Producer Nitrogen Report.

Can Producers Elect PACE Coverage on Some Units and Not Others?

Producers may select PACE on an optional or basic unit basis. Producers may also elect PACE on some units and not others, but all eligible acreage within each selected unit must be insured.
