Buying a crop insurance policy is one risk management option. Producers should always carefully consider how a policy will work in conjunction with their other risk management strategies to insure the best possible outcome each crop year. Crop insurance agents and other agri-business specialists can assist farmers in developing a good management plan.
Valley Ag Insurance provides policies for more than 100 crops. Federal crop insurance policies typically consist of the Common Crop Insurance Policy, the specific crop provisions, and policy endorsements and special provisions.
USDA’s Farm Service Agency manages the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP), providing financial assistance to producers of noninsurable crops when low yields, loss of inventory, or prevented planting occurs.
Multiple-peril crop insurance pilot programs are available in selected states and counties.
Private Hail and Fire policies are also available for many crops. Please contact us to customize an individual crop insurance program for your specific needs.
