The promise of a successful harvest shines brightest at planting. As a grower plots his crop management budget across the season, however, he remembers the years when the promise was broken – whether from not enough rain, too much rain, a late freeze, an early freeze, hail… the list goes on. And that’s where the element of risk impacts a grower’s decision to manage for optimum yield.
Bayer understands the risk growers shoulder. That’s why we created a risk management program designed to give you the economic freedom to manage for high yield potential.
Welcome to the 2018 Bayer Shared Risk™ Program – West.
You provide the expertise. You plant industry-leading varieties from the FiberMax®
lineups and add the Bayer technology that boosts your profit opportunity. We back our science and your artful management with:
- Replant protection on irrigated or dryland acres.
- Crop Loss protection on irrigated or dryland acres.
- Dryland protection for producers who suffer crop loss due to drought. Dryland protection is provided for yields less than 200 lbs. lint per acre.
That’s the overview. Here are the details.
The Replant Program is available on all acres in the West Region planted to FiberMax and/or Stoneville cotton seed. The program is designed to support growers who lose their first planting to replant to Bayer cottonseed. When replanting to cottonseed isn’t possible, the program supports replant to Credenz® soybeans. Read more...
The Crop Loss Program is available when a grower who planted FiberMax and/or Stoneville cotton seed loses his stand within 60 days of final planting. Growers can file claims for seed and trait costs. Read more...
Dryland Protection is designed to support growers to manage for high yield throughout the season. Dryland Protection, which includes seed and trait costs, is provided when yield falls under 200 pounds per acre. Read more...
