Insurance claims could break records this year. So, when will farmers receive their 2012 crop insurance checks?

This week's Farm Journal Pulse, a text message survey of farmers and ranchers, asked: When do you expect to receive a crop insurance check for your 2012 crops?

Here’s a breakdown of the results:

  • No insurance/claim: 39%
  • Already have: 20%
  • Late November: 3%
  • December: 11%
  • January: 9%
  • Don't know: 17%


Based on the results, only 20% of those who have crop insurance have received their check, while 17% don’t know when to expect a check.
