What Replant Option Is

The Replant Option provides extra coverage to cover expenses when a covered peril causes a grower to replant all or a portion of a field.

The Replant Option is bought in conjunction with a Multi-Peril Crop Insurance (MPCI) policy. It supplements the MPCI policy to help cover expenses above the loss payment of the MPCI policy.

Loss Payment Calculations

The Replant Option combines with the MPCI policy during a loss and the total payment can’t be more than the overall cost to replant. If the combination is under the overall cost to replant, the full Replant Option won’t be paid.

Total Insurance Limit

Coverage per acre * Total acres * Share

$40 per acre * 100 acres * 100% share = $4,000 limit

Replant Loss Amount

Coverage per acre * Acres Replanted * Share

$40 per acre * 25 acres * 100% share = $1,000 payment

Total Cost to replant 25 acres

$2,000 total

Replant Option and MPCI Payment Combination

$1000 Replant Option + $400 MPCI Replant < $2000 cost to replant

Grower receives full $1000 Replant Option Payment
