Limitation of Liability
Liability will not be accepted by the Association for any loss as a result of disease, insect damage, lodging, delayed maturity, or loss of market occurring
in any insured crop which has been damaged by hail.
- When crops are damaged by hail in the early stages of growth (prior to heading or podding) a loss factor may be applied in determining the payable loss.
- In the event that crops hailed in early stages of growth receive frost damage, when other similar crops in the area which were not hailed are not frozen,
the Association is prepared to review the claim. Evidence of the crop must be left unharvested and written request for review must be received on or before October
31st of the current year. For more information call the Association's office.
