Tuesday’s hail storm that hammered Madison County Nebraska and the Norfolk area caused significant corn crop damage. That’s according to County Farm Service Agency Director Randy Guill. He says after surveying fields he noticed quite a bit of damage.
Guill says he expects some prevent plant due to the storm.
He recommends producers speak right away with their crop insurance agent. He says while doing that they do have the option of certifying their acres with their agent or can do it at the FSA office if they’ve made an appointment.
Guill says since most of their appointments are already booked for certifying acres they wanted to make that option available.
