  • Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I sign up for one of your policies?

    Please fill out the contact form below and a licensed crop insurance agent will reach out to you to discuss risks on your farm. If you have a local crop insurance agent, we recommend you include them in our discussions.

    Do you cover mandated destruction of plants if THC levels are too high ("hot")?

    HempGuard does offer THC protection if certain testing protocols are met. Our HempSecure policies, in line with the Federal crop policy, does not cover mandated plant destruction. For more information about Hemp protocols or for general hemp application questions click here or call 800-978-6342.

    Do you cover prevented plant or replant costs?

    Similar to the Federal policy, neither HempSecure or HempGuard policies cover prevent plant or replant costs. This is a coverage option we are monitoring for possible inclusion as more planting data for industrial hemp becomes available.

    What is the deadline for purchasing this policy?

    HempSecure sales closing dates are either 2/28 or 3/15 but may be extended subject to underwriting review. Final planting dates are the same as the Federal hemp insurance dates depending upon the county of the crop being planted. HempSecure policies are individually underwritten. The HempGuard sales closing date is 4/1 but occasionally is extended if the planting season is late.

    When are premium payments due?

    Premiums are due at coverage binding and based on expected planted acres.
