ARE Associate Department Head and Professor Nick Piggott offers guidance to farmers whose crops have been impacted by the massive floods caused by Hurricane Florence. At a time when many may be wondering whether crops are salvageable and how to work with insurance agents to ensure that the best possible outcome is reached, Piggott breaks down the process of evaluating whether to harvest and how to calculate potential losses. He explains the critical distinction between flood water and pooled water, and how each impacts the ability of crops to be harvested and sold. He also highlights crucial items to cover with insurance agents and loss adjusters, and provides a step by step guide to determining break-even yield.
