Permalink Growers Invited to Take Survey of Attitudes about Crop Insurance

The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is asking growers to take a new survey that explores their needs and opinions about crop insurance. The 2014 Farm Bill greatly increased access to crop insurance for organic, diversified, and specialty-crop growers. Most notably, the USDA was required to offer a new insurance product—Whole-Farm Revenue Protection—that allows farms to insure virtually any combination of commodities (including livestock) under a single policy. So far, however, only a small percentage of those who are eligible have taken advantage of the new opportunities. Confidential and anonymous, the survey takes just 20 to 30 minutes (on any computer, smart phone, or other mobile device) and is open to anyone who is farming or ranching commercially in the United States. Survey results will be used to plan educational efforts and make recommendations to the USDA. A $20 honorarium is offered to the initial group of respondents. (Funds are limited.) Growers may take the survey at www.ncat.org/cropinsurance, and are invited to share the link widely. For more information, e-mail cropinsurance@ncat.org.
