- Haying, grazing, or cutting/ensiling planted cover crop prior to November 1st will result in a reduction in PP payment (35% payment)

- If you plan to utilize cover crop before November 1st, crop must not be planted before the late planting period (LPP), typically 25 days after the Final Planting Date. Planting before the LPP will result in 0% PP payment.*
