chart factors for Zone 2 wheat. Low hanger losses
at the boot stage were lower than current chart
factors and those at anthesis were consistent with
current chart factors. Low hanger losses at milk,
soft dough, and hard dough stages were greater

than current Zone 2 chart factors.
The NCIS agronomic research program could
not happen without the support of NCIS member
companies. We value their financial support and
input on the crops to study and implementation

of the results. The research conducted provides
the science behind the industry loss adjustment
procedures. Crop insurance loss adjusters then
have the knowledge they need to accurately determine crop damage. This gives farmers peace of
mind knowing that their crop has been adjusted
fairly. Look for future NCIS agronomic research
reports to provide final conclusions on these recent studies, as well as updates to loss adjustment
procedures, where applicable.

NCIS Adds
New Industry Award Category
The NCIS industry awards were first established in
2001 to honor individuals who provide exemplary service to the crop insurance industry. The awards recognize those who consistently demonstrate outstanding
leadership by their willingness to serve the industry by
going above and beyond their roles with their individual companies.
In the last 20 years, more than 50 exemplary people
have received recognition and honor by their peers in
the industry. All nominations are reviewed by the NCIS
Communications & Outreach Committee with final
nominees approved by the NCIS Board of Directors.
Beginning with the award ceremony in 2021, a
new industry award has been created to recognize individuals who have been instrumental in the success
of the crop insurance industry but who may not fit
the criteria required with the other award categories.
The Friend of the Industry award will recognize an
individual who has provided an exceptional and notable contribution to the crop insurance industry. This
person may either work in crop insurance directly or
is part of another organization and exhibits outstanding leadership and guidance to, and knowledge of the
crop insurance industry.
