Post-Application Coverage Endorsement (PACE)
What is PACE?
The Post-Application Coverage Endorsement (PACE) is a brand new form of supplemental coverage for YP, RP, and RP-HPE policies, which builds on the RMA’s recent efforts to reward conservation and sustainable farming among American producers.
PACE provides payment to policyholders who split-apply nitrogen fertilizer and are unable to carry out adequate nitrogen application during the growing season due to weather and poor field conditions, and who suffer a projected yield loss as a result.
What Does it Mean to "Split-Apply" Nitrogen?
Split-applying nitrogen is a farming practice in which producers spread their fertilizer application across multiple treatments throughout the growing season rather than applying it all at once.
Split-application is believed to be better for the environment due to a reduction in nitrogen leaching, which can be a significant problem for water quality.
The practice is also likely to reduce input costs for those producers who implement it.
Where is PACE Available?
PACE is available for non-irrigated corn in certain counties in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
