Crop insurance extends some planting deadlines in Ontario: What you need to know

For a large part of the corn growing area of Ontario the deadline to plant corn is fast approaching, however Agricorp — the crop insurance vehicle in the province — has announced several extensions and exceptions for the 2019 cropping year.

Depending on the area, farmers may have up to June 17 to plant corn and still be covered; the insurable soybean planting window has been extended to July 5 for some areas, as well. Other crop types, such as canola, dry beans, and more, also have extended deadlines.

Even with this extension, there may be significant acres that go in after the deadline.  If you do decide to plant past the crop insurance deadline, it’s best to talk to your local agent to fully understand the risks.

For those who qualify for unseeded acreage coverage, growers are encouraged to get in touch with Agricorp sooner, rather than later, as reporting deadlines are approaching.
