Andrew, can you tell us what impact COVID-19 has had on the farming industry?
“Similarly, with arable farming there’s been delays in in the supply of inputs; fertilisers, crop protection, etc.”
“With regards to delays in supply, unfortunately this is something that would not be insured under a standard farming policy, so we would recommend regular contact with the suppliers to ensure that goods are readily available as and when you need them.”
“Likewise, if they’re going on to third-party land we recommended that they maintain social distancing rules and consider personal hygiene to prevent the spread of the virus.”
“With regards to diversifying we’d recommend speaking to your insurance broker to ensure that the insurers are aware as to what you’re doing and making sure that your liability insurance will cover you.”
