Something that has to take part of the sting out of the Iowa hurricane winds and corn damage is crop insurance. I have no corn and have never bought crop insurance. So maybe someone affected will school us/me on the coverage most purchase. I'm sure some do not purchase crop insurance, but that is their gamble. So let us know. Does crop insurance cover only your input? or is it covering part of the "potential" profits. gobble

You can get more insurance than what you put in but I don't pay for it. I have the basic federal crop insurance for corn and soybeans. I used to pay for hail insurance but in 12 years I only collected once. You can also pay extra for wind damage from some insurance companies but I never have. For my crop insurance I certify my acres and type of crop with the USDA Farm Service Agency and give copies to my insurance company. The insurance company then determines the value of the crops I planted with close to current prices. I then tell them if I want to pay insurance premiums for 100%-90%-80%-70% of that determined value. At the end of the year I give my insurance company my yields. If the yields and/or prices are below what I paid for then I receive compensation.

Most people will get 80-90% of their damaged crop but they will make them try to harvest at the cost of time and machinery damage.

I was out of power for a day and half but some in Ames still without power this weekend. They say 10 million acres of corn in iowa flat or pretty much flat. As I drive for my job, I believe it.

My fields had some damage but not too bad. I guess I didn't really take any pictures to show you guys.

The pictures you see doesn't show the total destruction that happened. You need to see with your own eyes to comprehend what happened. I was sitting at the rest area south of Cedar Rapids when 112 mph wind clocked at the airport 1 mile away hit the area.

John, I am sad to see the damage a big storm can do. I pray that the farms will make it now. The storm broke up just inside Ohio line if I recall,we did not get any rain or high winds out of it in my area. Jerry from Ohio

The grain bins being partially or totally empty getting ready for fall crop got ripped apart. Corn is flat as a pancake, or so I hear. Iowan's griping that the storm was as severe as any hurricane but the news never picket it up. I am guessing that is true as I finally heard NPR talk about it on Friday when it happened on MOnday.

It reminded me when we vacationed in New England long ago when the Sox were making a serious pennant run and there was a heatwave in New England. It was hot, and finding cabins with A/c was pretty hard. From what was on the radio, I think they could have nuked Omaha and it wouldn't have cracked the news there.
