Crop insurance comparisons by province ? happyfarmer and others .

Oct 5, 2016 | 19:04 1 happyfarmers comment a while back that sask customers were paying more for less got me thinking and checking ? I must say I wasn't sure exactly where we were at ? anyways it would be interesting to compare provinces if people wouldn't mind divulging that info . I checked our canola coverage and it runs about $435/ac for $9.70 premium . to bad we have $395 /ac into it without machinery costs , lol. our IP canola is close to $400 /ac coverage for $11.25/ac premium . sure nice to fall back on when you get kicked in the nuts with 3 feet of rain like this year. anyone from other provinces , or here , care to comment ?

I will get exact numbers later but I just roughly. done it in my head , might be a bit high ? includes rent , nh3 and app in fall ( not this fall tho) then we float 200#'s of fines and pay for floating then put phos and potash and more N throgh drill , total blend 140-40-10-48. then the seed with lumiderm is close to $70 . weed spray , fungicide ,roundup in fall and spring burn off , bug spray , spraying , fuel etc . was taking into acct some usage of machinery ($5 /ac spraying.) I guess , but not parts , purchasing of machinery etc. . has worked well for us and have a really good long term average on yield Reply With Quote

I guess i stand corrected Case. I understood Sask was worse coverage,,,guess I was wrong. I just checked mine. Across B to D land average is $421 coverage at 8.12/acre. Thats at 80 % coverage Reply With Quote
