Both FCIC and reinsured policies:
Dry Pea Crop Provisions
1. Definitions
Adequate stand. A population of live plants per acre that will produce at least the yield used to establish your production guarantee.
Base contract price. The price per pound stipulated in the processor/seed company contract without regard to discounts or incentives that may apply, and that will be paid to the producer for at least 50 percent of the total production under contract with the processor/seed company.
Combining. A mechanical process that separates the peas from the pods and other vegetative matter and places the peas into a temporary storage receptacle.
Conditioning. A process that improves the quality of production by screening or any other operation commonly used in the dry pea industry to remove dry peas that are deficient in quality.
Contract seed peas. Peas (Pisum sativum L.) grown under the terms of a processor/seed company contract for the purpose of producing seed to be used in planting a future year's crop.
Dry peas. Peas (Pisum sativum L.), Austrian Peas (Pisum sativum spp arvense), Lentils (Lens culinaris Medik.), Chickpeas (Cicer arietinum L.), and other types as listed on the Special Provisions.
Harvest. Combining of dry peas. Dry peas that are swathed prior to combining are not considered harvested.
Local market price. The cash price per pound for the U.S. No. 1 grade of dry peas as determined by us. Such price will be the prevailing dollar amount these buyers are willing to pay for dry peas containing the maximum limits of quality deficiencies allowable for the U.S. No. 1 grade. Factors not associated with grading under the United States Standards for Whole Dry Peas, Split Peas and Lentils will not be considered, unless otherwise specified in the Special Provisions.
Nurse crop (companion crop). A crop planted into the same acreage as another crop to improve the growing conditions for the crop with which it is grown, and that is intended to be harvested separately.
Planted acreage. In addition to the definition contained in the Basic Provisions, dry peas must initially be planted in rows to be considered planted. Acreage planted in any other manner will not be insurable unless otherwise provided by the Special Provisions or by written agreement.
Practical to replant. In addition to the definition contained in the Basic Provisions, it will not be considered practical to replant:
(a) Contract seed peas unless the processor/seed company will accept the production under the terms of the processor/seed company contract.
(b) Fall-planted dry peas more than 25 days after the final planting date for the corresponding spring-planted type of dry peas.
(c) All other dry peas more than 25 days after the final planting date unless replanting is generally occurring in the area.
Price election. In addition to the provisions of the definition contained in the Basic Provisions, the price election for contract seed peas will be the percentage you elect (not to exceed 100 percent) of the base contract price and used for the purposes of determining premium and indemnity for contract seed peas under this policy.
Processor/seed company. Any business enterprise regularly engaged in the processing of contract seed peas, that possesses all licenses and permits for marketing contract seed peas required by the state in which it operates, and that owns, or has contracted, sufficient drying, screening, and bagging or packaging equipment to accept and process the contract seed peas within a reasonable amount of time after harvest.
Processor/seed company contract. A written agreement between the producer and the processor/seed company, executed by the acreage reporting date, containing at a minimum:
(a) The producer's promise to plant and grow one or more specific varieties of contract seed peas, and deliver the production from those varieties to the processor/seed company;
(b) The processor/seed company's promise to purchase all the production stated in the contract; and
(c) A fixed price, or a method to determine such price based on published information compiled by a third party, that will be paid to the producer for at least 50 percent of the production stated in the contract.
Swathed. Severance of the stem and pods from the ground without removal of the seeds from the pods and placing them into windrows.
Type. A category of dry peas identified as a type in the Special Provisions.
Windrow. Dry peas where the plants are cut and placed in a row.
2. Unit Division
In addition to, or instead of, establishing optional units by section, section equivalent, or FSA farm serial number and by irrigated and non-irrigated acreage as provided in the unit division provisions contained in the Basic Provisions, separate optional units may be established for each dry pea type as specified on the Special Provisions. Contract seed peas and dry pea types not grown under a processor/seed company contract may qualify for separate optional units even if they share a common variety provided each dry pea type is grown on separate acreage and the production is kept separate.
3. Insurance Guarantees, Coverage Levels, and Prices for Determining Indemnities
(a) In accordance with the requirements of section 3(b) of the Basic Provisions, you may select only one coverage level for each type listed on the Special Provisions. However, if you elect the Catastrophic Risk Protection (CAT) level of insurance for any dry pea type, the CAT level of coverage will be applicable to all insured dry pea acreage in the county.
(b) In addition to the requirements of section 3 of the Basic Provisions:
(1) If the Special Provisions do not designate separate price elections by type, you may select only one price election for all dry peas in the county insured under this policy.
(2) If the Special Provisions designate separate price elections by type, you may select one price election for each dry pea type so designated in the Special Provisions even if the prices for each type are the same. The price elections you choose for each type are not required to have the same percentage relationship to the maximum price offered by us for each type. For example, if you choose 100 percent of the maximum price election for one type, you may choose 75 percent of the maximum price election for another type.
(c) In addition to the requirements of section 3 of the Basic Provisions, in counties with both a fall and spring sales closing date for the insured crop:
(1) If you do not have any insured fall-planted dry pea acreage covered under the Winter Coverage Option, you may change your coverage level or percentage of price election until the spring sales closing date; or
(2) If you have any insured fall-planted dry pea acreage covered under the Winter Coverage Option, you may not change your coverage level or percentage of price election after the fall sales closing date.
(d) If a dry pea type is added after the sales closing date, we will assign:
(1) A coverage level equal to the lowest coverage level you selected for any other dry pea types; and
(2) A price election percentage equal to:
(i) 100 percent of the price election if you elected additional coverage; and
(ii) 55 percent of the price election if you elected catastrophic level of coverage.
4. Contract Changes
In accordance with section 4 of the Basic Provisions, the contract change date is November 30 preceding the cancellation date.
5. Cancellation and Termination Dates
In accordance with section 2 of the Basic Provisions, the cancellation and termination dates are March 15.
6. Report of Acreage
In addition to the provisions of section 6 of the Basic Provisions, you must submit a copy of the processor/seed company contract to us on or before the acreage reporting date if you are insuring contract seed peas.
7. Insured Crop
(a) In accordance with section 8 of the Basic Provisions, the crop insured will be all the dry pea types in the county for which a premium rate is provided by the actuarial documents:
(1) In which you have a share;
(2) That are planted for harvesting once maturity is reached as:
(i) Dry peas; or
(ii) Contract seed peas, if the processor/seed company contract is executed on or before the acreage reporting; and
(3) That are not (unless allowed by the Special Provisions or by written agreement):
(i) Interplanted with another crop;
(ii) Planted into an established grass or legume;
(iii) Planted as a nurse crop; or
(iv) Planted to plow down, graze, harvest as hay, or otherwise not harvest as a mature dry pea crop.
(b) You will be considered to have a share in the insured crop if, under the processor/seed company contract, you retain control of the acreage on which the dry peas are grown, you are at risk of loss (i.e., if there is a reduction in quantity or quality of your dry pea production, you will receive less income under the contract), and the processor/seed company contract is in effect for the entire insurance period.
(c) In counties for which the actuarial documents provide premium rates for the Winter Coverage Option (see section 15), coverage is available for dry peas between the time coverage begins and the spring final planting date. Coverage under the option is effective only if you qualify under the terms of the option and you elect the option by the sales closing date.
8. Insurable Acreage
In addition to the provisions of section 9 of the Basic Provisions:
(a) We will not insure any acreage that does not meet the rotation requirements, if applicable, contained in the Special Provisions; or
(b) Any acreage of the insured crop damaged before the final planting date, to the extent that producers in the surrounding area would normally not further care for the crop, must be replanted unless we agree that it is not practical to replant.
(c) Whenever the Special Provisions designate both fall and spring final planting dates:
(1) Any fall-planted dry peas that is damaged before the spring final planting date, to the extent that growers in the area would normally not further care for the crop, must be replanted to a fall-planted type of dry peas to maintain insurance based on the fall-planted type unless we agree that replanting is not practical. If it is not practical to replant to a fall-planted type of dry peas but it is practical to replant to a spring-planted type, you must replant to a spring-planted type to keep your insurance coverage based on the fall-planted type in force.
(2) Any fall-planted dry pea acreage that is replanted to a spring-planted type when it was practical to replant the fall-planted type will be insured as the spring-planted type and the production guarantee, premium and price election applicable to the spring-planted type will be used. In this case, the acreage will be considered to be initially planted to the spring-planted type.
(3) Notwithstanding section 8(d)(1) and (2), if you have elected coverage under the Winter Coverage Option (if available in the county), insurance will be in accordance with the option.
(d) Whenever the Special Provisions designate only a spring final planting date, any acreage of a fall-planted dry pea crop is not insured unless you request such coverage on or before the spring sales closing date, and we agree in writing that the acreage has an adequate stand in the spring to produce the yield used to determine your production guarantee.
(1) The fall-planted dry pea crop will be insured as a spring-planted type for the purpose of the production guarantee, premium and price election.
(2) Insurance will attach to such acreage on the date we determine an adequate stand exists or on the spring final planting date if we do not determine adequacy of the stand prior to the spring final planting date.
(3) Any acreage of such fall-planted dry peas that is damaged after it is accepted for insurance but before the spring final planting date, to the extent that growers in the area would normally not further care for the crop, must be replanted to a spring-planted type of dry pea unless we agree it is not practical to replant. No replanting payment will be made.
(4) If fall-planted acreage is not to be insured it must be recorded on the acreage report as uninsured fall-planted acreage.
9. Insurance Period
9. Insurance Period.
In accordance with the provisions of section 11 of the Basic Provisions, and subject to the provisions provided by the Winter Coverage Option (see section 15) if you elect such option, the insurance period is as follows:
(a) Coverage for fall-planted dry peas not covered by the Winter Coverage Option will begin on the earlier of April 15 or the date we agree to accept the acreage for insurance, but not before March 1, unless otherwise specified on the Special Provisions.
(b) The calendar date for the end of the insurance period for all insurable types of dry peas in the county is September 30 of the crop year in which the crop is normally harvested unless otherwise specified in the Special Provisions.
10. Causes of Loss
In accordance with the provisions of section 12 of the Basic Provisions, insurance is provided only against the following causes of loss that occur during the insurance period:
(a) Adverse weather conditions;
(b) Fire;
(c) Insects, but not damage due to insufficient or improper application of pest control measures;
(d) Plant disease, but not damage due to insufficient or improper application of disease control measures;
(e) Wildlife;
(f) Earthquake;
(g) Volcanic eruption; or
(h) Failure of the irrigation water supply, if due to a cause of loss contained in section 10(a) through (g) that occurs during the insurance period.
11. Replanting Payments
(a) A replanting payment is allowed as follows:
(1) In lieu of provisions in section 13 of the Basic Provisions that limit the amount of a replant payment to the actual cost of replanting, the amount of any replanting payment will be determined in accordance with these Crop Provisions;
(2) You must comply with all requirements regarding replanting payments contained in section 13 of the Basic Provisions (except as allowed in section 11(a)(1)) and in the Winter Coverage Option (see section 15), if applicable;
(3) The insured crop must be damaged by an insurable cause of loss to the extent that the remaining stand will not produce at least 90 percent of the production guarantee for the acreage;
(4) The acreage must have been initially planted to a spring type of the insured crop in those counties with only a spring final planting date;
(5) When the Winter Coverage Option is in effect for the acreage, damage must occur after the fall final planting date in those counties where both a fall and spring final planting date are designated;
(6) Replanting payments are not available for damaged fall planted dry pea acreage if you have not elected to cover such acreage under the Winter Coverage Option; and
(7) The replanted crop must be seeded at a rate sufficient to achieve a total (undamaged and new seeding) plant population that will produce at least the yield used to determine your production guarantee.
(b) The maximum amount of the replanting payment per acre will be the lesser of 20.0 percent of the production guarantee or 200 pounds, multiplied by your price election, multiplied by your share, unless otherwise stated in the Special Provisions.
(c) When the crop is replanted using a practice that is uninsurable for an original planting, the liability on the unit will be reduced by the amount of the replanting payment. The premium amount will not be reduced.
(d) Replanting payments will be calculated using the price election and production guarantee for the dry pea type that is replanted and insured. For example, if damaged smooth green and yellow pea acreage is replanted to lentils, the price election and production guarantee applicable to lentils will be used to calculate any replanting payment that may be due. A revised acreage report will be required to reflect the replanted type. Notwithstanding the previous two sentences, the following will have a replanting payment based on the guarantee and price election for the crop type initially planted:
(1) Any damaged fall-planted type of dry peas replanted to a spring-planted type that retains insurance based on the production guarantee and price election for the fall-planted type; and
(2) Any acreage replanted at a reduced seeding rate into a partially damaged stand of the insured crop.
12. Duties in the Event of Damage or Loss
Representative samples are required in accordance with section 14 of the Basic Provisions.
13. Settlement of Claim
(a) We will determine your loss on a unit basis. In the event you are unable to provide records of production that are acceptable to us for any:
(1) Optional units, we will combine all optional units for which acceptable records of production were not provided; or
(2) Basic units, we will allocate any commingled production to such units in proportion to our liability on the harvested acreage for the units.
(b) In the event of loss or damage to your dry pea crop covered by this policy, we will settle your claim by:
(1) Multiplying the insured acreage of each dry pea type, if applicable, excluding contract seed peas, by its respective production guarantee;
(2) Multiplying each result of section 13(b)(1) by the respective price election;
(3) Totaling the results of section 13(b)(2);
(4) Multiplying the insured acreage of each contract seed pea variety by its respective production guarantee;
(5) Multiplying each result of section 13(b)(4) by the applicable base contract price;
(6) Multiplying each result of section 13(b)(5) by your selected price election percentage;
(7) Totaling the results of section 13(b)(6);
(8) Totaling the results of section 13(b)(3) and section 13(b)(7);
(9) Multiplying the total production to be counted of each dry pea type, excluding contract seed peas, if applicable (see section 13(d)), by the respective price elections;
(10) Totaling the value of all contract seed pea production (see section 13(c));
(11) Totaling the results of section 13(b)(9) and section 13(b)(10);
(12) Subtracting the result of section 13(b)(11) from the result in section 12(b)(8); and
(13) Multiplying the result of section 13(b)12 by your share.
For example:
In this example, you have not elected optional units by type. You have a 100 percent share in 100 acres of spring-planted smooth green dry edible peas in the unit, with a 70 percent guarantee of 4,000 pounds per acre and a price election of $0.09 per pound. Your selected price election percentage is 100 percent. You are only able to harvest 200,000 pounds. Your indemnity would be calculated as follows:
(1) 100 acres × 4,000 pounds = 400,000-pound guarantee;
(2) 400,000-pound guarantee × $0.09 price election = $36,000.00 value of guarantee;
(9) 200,000-pound production to count × $0.09 price election = $18,000.00 value of production to count;
(12) $36,000.00 value of guarantee − $18,000.00 value of production to count = $18,000.00 loss; and
(13) $18,000.00 × 100 percent share = $18,000.00 indemnity payment.
You also have a 100 percent share in 100 acres of contract seed peas in the same unit, with a 65 percent guarantee of 5,000 pounds per acre and a base contract price of $0.40 per pound. Your selected price election percentage is 75 percent. You are only able to harvest 450,000 pounds. Your total indemnity for both spring-planted smooth green dry edible peas and contract seed peas would be calculated as follows:
(1) 100 acres × 4,000 pounds = 400,000-pound guarantee for the spring-planted smooth green dry edible pea type;
(2) 400,000-pound guarantee × $0.09 price election = $36,000.00 value of guarantee for the spring-planted smooth green dry edible pea type;
(4) 100 acres × 5,000 pounds = 500,000-pound production to count for the contract seed pea type;
(5) 500,000-pound guarantee × $0.40 base contract price = $200,000.00 gross value of guarantee for the contract seed pea type;
(6) $200,000 × .75 price election percentage = $150,000 net value of guarantee for the contract seed pea type;
(8) $36,000.00 $150,000.00 = $186,000.00 total value of guarantee;
(9) 200,000-pound production to count × $0.09 price election = $18,000.00 value of production to count for the spring-planted smooth green dry edible pea type;
(10) 450,000-pound production to count × $0.30 = $135,000.00 value of production to count for the contract seed pea type;
(11) $18,000.00 $135,000.00 = $153,000.00 total value of production to count;
(12) $186,000.00 − $153,000.00 = $33,000.00 loss; and
(13) $33,000.00 loss × 100 percent share = $33,000.00 indemnity payment.
(c) The value of contract seed pea production to count for each variety in the unit will be determined as follows:
(1) For mature production meeting the objective, measurable minimum quality requirements (e.g., size, germination percentage) contained in the processor/seed company contract, and for mature production that does not meet such requirements due to uninsured causes:
(i) Multiplying the local market price or base contract price per pound, whichever is greater, by the price election percentage you selected; and
(ii) Multiplying the result by the number of pounds of such production.
(2) For mature production not meeting the objective, measurable minimum quality requirements (e.g., size, germination percentage) contained in the processor/seed company contract, due to insurable causes, and immature production that is appraised:
(i) Multiplying the highest local market price available for such dry peas by the price election percentage you selected; and
(ii) Multiplying the result by the number of pounds of such production.
(d) The total dry pea production to count (in pounds) from all insurable acreage on the unit will include:
(1) All appraised production as follows:
(i) Not less than the production guarantee per acre for acreage:
(A) That is abandoned;
(B) That is put to another use without our consent;
(C) That is damaged solely by uninsured causes; or
(D) For which you fail to provide production records that are acceptable to us;
(ii) Production lost due to uninsured causes;
(iii) Unharvested production (mature unharvested production of dry peas may be adjusted for quality deficiencies in accordance with section 12 (c) or (e), if applicable); and
(iv) Potential production on insured acreage that you intend to put to another use or abandon, if you and we agree on the appraised amount of production. Upon such agreement, the insurance period for that acreage will end when you put the acreage to another use or abandon the crop. If agreement on the appraised amount of production is not reached:
(A) If you do not elect to continue to care for the crop, we may give you consent to put the acreage to another use if you agree to leave intact, and provide sufficient care for, representative samples of the crop in locations acceptable to us (The amount of production to count for such acreage will be based on the harvested production or appraisals from the samples at the time harvest should have occurred. If you do not leave the required samples intact, or fail to provide sufficient care for the samples, our appraisal made prior to giving you consent to put the acreage to another use will be used to determine the amount of production to count); or
(B) If you elect to continue to care for the crop, the amount of production to count for the acreage will be the harvested production, or our reappraisal if the crop is not harvested; and
(2) All harvested production from the insurable acreage.
(e) Mature dry pea production that does not qualify as contract seed peas under the policy terms or does not meet the objective, measurable minimum quality requirements (e.g., size, germination percentage) contained in the processor/seed company contract, may be adjusted for quality deficiencies.
(1) Production will be eligible for quality adjustment in accordance with the following, unless otherwise specified in the Special Provisions:
(i) Deficiencies in quality, in accordance with the United States Standards for Whole Dry Peas, Split Peas, and Lentils, result in production grading U.S. No. 2 or worse because of defects, color, skinned production (lentils only), odor, material weathering, or distinctly low quality; or
(ii) Substances or conditions are present that are identified by the Food and Drug Administration or other public health organizations of the United States as being injurious to human or animal health.
(2) Quality will be a factor in determining your loss only if:
(i) The deficiencies, substances, or conditions resulted from a cause of loss against which insurance is provided under these Crop Provisions and which occurs within the insurance period;
(ii) The deficiencies, substances, or conditions result in a net price for the damaged production that is less than the local market price;
(iii) All determinations of these deficiencies, substances, or conditions are made using samples of the production obtained by us or by a disinterested third party approved by us;
(iv) With regard to deficiencies in quality (except test weight, which may be determined by our loss adjuster), the samples are analyzed by:
(A) A grader licensed under the United States Agricultural Marketing Act or the United States Warehouse Act;
(B) A grader licensed under State law and employed by a warehouse operator who has a storage agreement with the Commodity Credit Corporation; or
(C) A grader not licensed under State law, but who is employed by a warehouse operator who has a commodity storage agreement with the Commodity Credit Corporation and is in compliance with State law regarding warehouses; and
(v) With regard to substances or conditions injurious to human or animal health, the samples are analyzed by a laboratory approved by us.
(3) Dry Pea production that is eligible for quality adjustment, as specified in sections 12(e) (1) and (2), will be reduced as follows:
(i) The highest local market price for the qualifying damaged production will be determined on the earlier of the date such damaged production is sold or the date of final inspection for the unit. The highest local market price for the qualifying damaged production will be determined in the local area to the extent feasible. We may obtain prices from any buyer of our choice. If we obtain prices from one or more buyers located outside your local market area, we will reduce such prices by the additional costs required to deliver the dry peas to those buyers. Discounts used to establish the net value of the damaged production will be limited to those that are usual, customary, and reasonable.
The value will not be reduced for:
(A) Moisture content;
(B) Damage due to uninsured causes; or
(C) Drying, handling, processing, or any other costs associated with normal harvesting, handling, and marketing of the dry peas; except, if the value of the damaged production can be increased by conditioning, we may reduce the value of the production after it has been conditioned by the cost of conditioning but not lower than the value of the production before conditioning;
(ii) The value per pound of the damaged or conditioned production will be divided by the local market price to determine the quality adjustment factor;
(iii) The number of pounds of the damaged or conditioned production will then be multiplied by the quality adjustment factor to determine the production count to be included in section 13(d); and
(iv) Any production harvested from plants growing in the insured crop may be counted as production of the insured crop on a weight basis.
14. Prevented Planting
Your prevented planting coverage will be 60 percent of your production guarantee for timely planted acreage. If you have additional levels of coverage as specified in 7 CFR part 400, subpart T, and pay an additional premium, you may increase your prevented planting coverage to a level specified in the actuarial documents.
15. Winter Coverage Option
(a) In the event of a conflict between this section and sections 1 through 14 of these Crop Provisions, this section will control.
(b) You must have purchased additional coverage under the Dry Pea Crop Provisions in order to select this option.
(c) In return for payment of the additional premium designated in the actuarial documents, this option is available in counties for which the actuarial documents provide premium rates for the Winter Coverage Option.
(d) This option is available only in counties for which the Special Provisions designate both a fall final planting date and a spring final planting date.
(e) You must select this option on your application for insurance, or on a form approved by us, on or before the sales closing date for the initial year in which you wish to insure dry peas under this option.
(1) Failure to do so means you have rejected this coverage for the dry pea crop planted in the fall and this option is void.
(2) This option will continue in effect until canceled or coverage under the Dry Pea Crop Provisions is canceled or terminated.
(3) This option may be canceled by you or us for any succeeding crop year by giving written notice to the other party on or before the cancellation date contained in section 15(g) preceding the crop year for which the cancellation of this option is to be effective.
(4) You may change your coverage level or percentage of price election for dry pea types until the spring sales closing date if you have selected this option, but do not have any insured fall planted acreage or your fall planted acreage is not eligible for this option.
(f) Coverage under this option begins on the later of the date we accept your application for coverage or on the fall final planting date designated in the Special Provisions. Coverage ends on the spring final planting date designated in the Special Provisions.
(g) If you elect this option for dry peas initially planted in the fall, the following dates will be applicable to all your fall-planted and spring-planted dry peas in the county:
(1) Contract change date is June 30 preceding the cancellation date;
(2) Cancellation date is September 30; and
(3) Termination date is November 30. For a policy with amounts due, when the sales closing date is prior to the previous crop year termination date, such policies will terminate for the current crop year even if insurance attached prior to the termination date. Such termination will be considered effective as of the sales closing date and no insurance will be considered to have attached for the crop year and no indemnity, prevented planting or replant payment will be owed.
(h) All notices of damage must be provided to us not later than 15 days after the spring final planting date designated in the Special Provisions.
(i) All insurable acreage of each fall planted dry pea type covered under this option must be insured.
(j) The amount of any indemnity paid under the terms of this option will be subject to any reduction specified in the Basic Provisions for multiple crop benefits in the same crop year.
(k) Whenever any acreage of dry peas planted in the fall is damaged during the insurance period and at least 20 acres or 20 percent of the insured planted acreage in the unit, whichever is less, does not have an adequate stand to produce at least 90 percent of the production guarantee for the acreage, you may, at your option, take one of the following actions:
(1) Continue to care for the damaged dry peas. By doing so, coverage will continue under the terms of the Basic Provisions, these Crop Provisions and this option;
(2) Replant the acreage to an appropriate type of insured dry peas, if it is practical, and receive a replanting payment in accordance with the terms of section 11. By doing so, coverage will continue under the terms of the Basic Provisions, these Crop Provisions and this option, and the production guarantee for the dry pea type planted in the fall will remain in effect; or
(3) Destroy the remaining crop on such acreage:
(i) By destroying the remaining crop, you agree to accept an appraised amount of production determined in accordance with section 13(d)(1) of these Crop Provisions to count against the unit production guarantee. This amount will be considered production to count in determining any final indemnity on the unit and will be used to settle your claim as described in section 13.
(ii) You may use such acreage for any purpose, including planting and separately insuring any other crop if such insurance is available.
(iii) If you elect to plant and elect to insure spring-planted dry pea acreage of the same dry pea type (you must elect whether or not you want insurance on the spring-planted acreage of the same dry pea type at the time we release the fall-planted acreage), you must pay additional premium for insurance. Such acreage will be insured in accordance with the policy provisions that are applicable to acreage that is initially planted in the spring to the same dry pea type, and you must:
(A) Plant the spring-planted acreage in a manner which results in a clear and discernable break in the planting pattern at the boundary between it and any remaining acreage of the fall-planted dry pea acreage; and
(B) Store or market the production in a manner which permits us to verify the amount of spring-planted production separately from any fall-planted production. In the event you are unable to provide records of production that are acceptable to us, the spring-planted acreage will be considered to be a part of the original fall-planted unit.
