Applications for the Wisconsin Crop Insurance Premium Rebate for Planting Cover Crops Program closed January 31, 2024. Under the program, interested participants could enroll acres planted to cover
crops in the fall of 2023, which will be planted to an insurable crop the following growing season. The program has $800,000, or 160,000 acres, of coverage to award on a first-come, first-served basis during the 2023-2024 application period. Eligible applicants will receive a $5 per acre rebate on their summer 2024 crop insurance premium for every acre enrolled and verified in the program.
- Producers or landowners that received federal or state cost-share or incentives for planting cover crops in 2023 are
not eligible for the program.
- Applicants will need their FSA-578 and FSA maps to complete the application. Contact your local FSA office to obtain these forms if needed.
- There is no limit on the number of acres an applicant can apply for.
