The promise of a successful harvest shines brightest at planting. Growers solidify that promise by bringing the best science to their fields—planting Stoneville® and FiberMax® cotton seed varieties with elite germplasm and innovative science. They layer that science with their expertise, the art of managing a cotton crop. Yet the chance remains for that promise to be 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 support our growers with a risk management tool designed to let you plant protected and give you the economic freedom to yield more and worry less.
Welcome to the 2018 Bayer Shared Risk™ Program – East.
When your expertise and our science lose a round to Mother Nature, Bayer provides:
- Replant protection on irrigated or dryland acres.
- Crop Loss protection on irrigated or dryland acres.
- Yield protection for producers whose yields are lower than 750 pounds per acre.
That’s the overview. Here are the details.
The Replant Program is available on all acres in the East Region planted to Stoneville and/or FiberMax 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 Stoneville and/or FiberMax cotton seed loses his stand within 60 days of final planting. Growers can file claims for seed, trait and listed inputs. Read more...
Yield protection is designed to support growers to manage for high yield throughout the season. Yield protection, which includes seed, trait and certain input costs, is provided when yields fall below 750 pounds per acre on dryland or irrigated fields. Read more...
