Yes, the field (or part field – minimum 3ha) can be left fallow if it is sprayed off e.g. with glyphosate or is cultivated in the autumn. However, a claim for failed establishment which is not re-drilled will automatically be audited.

When a claim is made we will ask you to submit all the relevant information to verify your claim. This will include agronomist recommendations, application records and invoice documentation. All information will be independently checked by a third-party organisation. Satellite data will also be used to verify claims, and a random selection will be verified by field visits.

On successful submission of a claim the Farm Business will receive a unique claim ID by email, this is the only valid receipt of a claim. In the event of a claim ID not being received, please contact us immediately.

Once we receive your claim, all the submitted data will be independently checked by a third-party agency. All claim applications should be responded to before the end of the year, and claims will be fulfilled following on from this.
