Adjuster Consent

In order to receive an indemnity, you must have an adjuster’s consent and/or release PRIOR to the following:

    • Replant
    • Destroying crop in case of First Crop-Second Crop
    • Silage/Chopping
    • Grinding grain from on-farm storage

Quality Precautions

If Aflatoxin, another Mycotoxin, or mold is suspected, you MUST contact your agent before:
• The grain is harvested
• The grain is put into storage
• The grain is delivered for sale
Your insurance provider will:
• Take samples for testing
• Submit the samples to an approved facility for grading
Because toxins can worsen in storage, quality losses are only insurable if:
• The grain is pulled by an adjuster and tested in an approved facility BEFORE being put into on-farm or commercial storage.
Losses related to toxins are NOT covered under MPCI if:
• Losses are due to increases in toxin levels while in farm storage.
• Losses cannot be documented because proper testing was not completed.
