Reducing Risk With Crop Insurance
Agriculture is a risky business. In an industry where one catastrophic year could wipe out five years of profit, most farmers wouldn’t think of operating without some form of crop insurance.
That’s where crop insurance comes in handy. This ag-focused insurance reduces risk and protects investments, assures lenders that producers have sufficient economic security to repay loans, and provides producers the safety to take advantage of market opportunities.

What Crop Insurance Covers
Crop insurance is purchased to protect producers against a loss of production and/or revenue from their crops due to natural disasters or the decline in commodity prices. Multi-peril crop insurance covers crop losses caused by natural events, such as destructive weather, disease, drought, fire, insect or wildlife damage, and flooding, just to name a few!
Crop Insurance Cost
Producer premium will vary from crop to crop, county by county, and year to year. Premiums are also influenced by coverage level, selected endorsements, and commodity prices. It is important that beginning farmers use an experienced agent to identify what their risk-management needs are and how best to mitigate and protect themselves from that risk as best as possible.
How Crop Insurance Is Calculated
Crop insurance liability is calculated by multiplying the per-acre guarantee of the crop by the price and the farmer’s share.
How Crop Insurance Pays Out
An indemnity would be due if a producer’s production falls below their guarantee or they have a loss in guaranteed revenue (if a revenue protection policy is in place). To learn more about the payout structure, connect with one of our experienced insurance specialists below.
