If you plant the insured crop during the Late Planting Period.

If you plant the intended crop after the 25 day Late Planting Period.

Crops that are planted after the 25 day Late Planting Period are insured at the same level as the prevented planted insurance coverage.  Or the producer can also choose to NOT insure acres planted after the Late Planting Period.
