Insurability of Crops Behind Headed Wheat–Rule Change

NO crop can be insured if it follows headed wheat. RMA has removed the 50% rule for cotton and says that NO heads can be found in the field. This includes volunteer plants that have headed out. If an adjuster goes to the field and finds any wheat heads in the crop that followed a wheat crop, the claim must be denied. This only applies to a non irrigated practice.
