Sask. has fewer hail claims

Few payouts for hail claims in Saskatchewan
One of the positive results of a cooler is summer is a record low number of crop hail claims.

700 claims were filed in September and an overall total of about 4,000claims. This compares to last year with over 20,000 claims.

The insurance answer
The rate for crop hail insurance is likely to go down next year. This is good news for farmers who have faced grasshoppers and a very cool summer season.
