After a hot dry Summer, many farmers struggled in the fields, loosing thousands of dollars in damaged crops. Helping to ease the pain of those losses, crop insurance. Sunday marked the deadline for farmers to buy or make changes to their crop insurance for wheat for 2013, and as farmers begin to harvest their fall crops, many farmers are feeling the effects of this Summer's drought.
While some farmers are learning the hard way, others are thankful they had the insurance, even though they may have questioned it before.
With corn and beans now being harvested, Alan Davis, of Alan Davis Insurance, expects to see an increase in the number of claims being made and an increase in new crop insurance accounts.
