Forage Seeding - Articles


Gerald Holmes, California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo,

Forage seeding is insurable in every county in Pennsylvania (except Philadelphia). A forage seeding is insurable if it is pure alfalfa or a forage mixture containing at least 50 percent alfalfa, clover, birdsfoot trefoil, or any other locally recognized and approved forage legume species (by weight) or it is planted during the current crop year to establish a normal stand of forage.

This policy does not cover any acreage that is grown with the intent to be grazed, grazed at any time during the insurance period, or is interplanted with another crop (except nurse crops).
