Mold and other quality losses are rarely severe enough to trigger crop insurance claims, as I found out when reporting today's news story on how growers will be compensated for their sub-par crops. Kernel damage and low test weights must meet thresholds before insurance adjustments trigger. In practice, crop insurers told me, it's hard for growers to get fully paid for dockage and they believe that will be the case with this latest outbreak of white mold in the Illinois and Indiana corn crops.
