Rebate For Cover Crops Now Open

Applications for the Wisconsin Crop Insurance Premium Rebate for Planting Cover Crops Program are now open.

Interested participants may enroll acres planted to cover crops in the fall of 2023, which will be planted to an insurable crop the following growing season. The program has $800,000, or 160,000 acres, of coverage to award on a first-come, first-served basis. 

  • Producers or landowners that received federal or state cost-share or incentives for planting cover crops in 2023 are not eligible for the program. 
  • Applicants will need their FSA-578 and FSA maps to complete the application. Contact your local FSA office to obtain these forms if needed. 
  • There is no limit on the number of acres an applicant can apply for. 
  • The application form was updated this year to minimize the need to duplicate information. The application and instructions are available via
