While crop insurance isn't new, it is more important than ever to thousands of farmers. The ability to fit the coverage to your individual operation, obtain coverage at a meaningful level and affordable price, secure the coverage from a local insurance professional, like Farm Credit, and know that the coverage is in place and can be counted on for financial planning purposes all combine to make crop insurance the cornerstone of many farmers' financial and risk management plans. These benefits of crop insurance are not new, but they continue to account for the success and acceptance of the program.
Tailor Your Coverage
You can tailor your coverage to fit your own specific operation's needs. You have a choice of coverage levels ranging from 50 up to 85 percent. Also, numerous coverage plans are available for many crops, including MPCI yield guarantee protection and revenue products that provide yield loss and price protection. These multiple choices of products and coverage levels provide you the opportunity to obtain the coverage that fits your specific operation and risk management needs.
Premiums are Affordable
You are able to purchase crop insurance at more affordable prices because the government shares in the risk and administrative premium costs. This results in affordable protection, while also resulting in manageable cost for taxpayers.
