The Wildfire and Hurricane Indemnity Program Plus (WHIP+) will be available for eligible producers who have suffered crop losses in counties with a Presidential Emergency Disaster Declaration or a Secretarial Disaster Designation. Disaster losses must be triggered by hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, volcanic activity, snowstorms, or wildfires in 2018 or 2019. BUT, drought will be an acceptable trigger for the 2018 season. Below is an image of the qualifying Kansas and Missouri counties.
If you received crop loss payments in 2018 based on drought, you will likely qualify for a WHIP+ payment. This includes PRF payments on ground listed as ‘HAYING’. 2019 did not trigger a drought payment, but there may be a few excessive moisture payments. Hail damage bad enough to trigger a yield loss could result in a WHIP+ payment for 2019.

Please contact your local FSA office as soon as possible because the signup deadline is October 30, 2020. I have been in contact with the FSA offices making sure that those with crop insurance through Ag Partners that had qualifying losses are on the list. If you have any questions, please give me a call.
