Replant Option (RO)

Supplemental Replant Option (RO)

Although most Multiple Peril Crop Insurance (MPCI) policies include replant coverage, it may not cover all of your expenses for replanting. You can offset some of your replanting costs in excess of those covered by your underlying MPCI policy with our Supplemental Replant Option (RO) insurance. We don’t have a minimum acreage requirement, so our RO plans pay on an insured loss from the first acre damaged.

Insured perils include:

  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Naturally occurring fire
  • Insects, if sufficient pest control measures are used
  • Plant disease, if sufficient disease control measures are used
  • Wildlife
  • Earthquake
  • Volcanic eruption
  • Irrigation supply failure, due to an insured peril

RO reimbursement calculation

In this example, the producer insures 200 acres of corn in one unit with 100% share and has elected $40 of coverage on the RO policy. On a 15 acre portion of the unit, it is determined by the company that it is feasible and necessary to replant. No replant payment was received on the CCIP policy. The $40 of elected coverage per acre will be used in calculating the reimbursement.

  • 15 acres × $40 elected coverage × 100% share = $600
You can offset some of your replanting costs in excess of those covered by your underlying MPCI policy with our Supplemental Replant Option (RO) insurance.
