Crop Insurance

The federal crop insurance program has traditionally been used mainly by farms growing corn, wheat, soybeans, rice, cotton, and a few other commodity crops. Within the past few years, though, new crop insurance options like Whole-Farm Revenue Protection have become available, greatly improving the opportunities for those who are diversified, grow fruits and vegetables, or farm with organic methods. Even if you've never considered crop insurance, and don't know the first thing about it, the resources on this page will help you decide if these new products may be right for your situation.
