Answer: The area that you live in will determine which crops are insurable. Our main office is located in Webster, South Dakota and, as such, I will use Day county and the surrounding area as a reference.
In this area all the major crops which include corn, soy beans, millet, and wheat are insurable. Other crops included are flax, sunflower, potatoes, sorghum, oats, barley, and alfalfa.
In parts of the five state area, some crops are only insurable with a written agreement. All of these crops as well as buckwheat, etc. can be covered with a hail policy.
