Explore more resources concerning prevented planting and crop insurance due to rain and flooding.
Earlier in the month, we shared a Q & A from a whitepaper concerning prevented planting and crop insurance put together by two Extension economists at the University of Georgia in order to assist growers who were dealing with such issues due to excessive rain and flooding. Florida has a summer wet season, and it is always a possibility that it will rain more than normal, or sooner than expected. Similarly, rain and flooding from hurricanes is always a possibility as well. See more resources, from the same whitepaper, below.
