You know the old saying: if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Nothing could be more true when it comes to your farming operation.
Planting crops is a risky proposition. You plan for the seed and fertilizer costs, plan when to put the crops in the ground and plan when to protect the plants. You work long hours … and then hope for the best.
Why Buy Crop Insurance?
Crop insurance is a risk management tool that is used to put a safety net under cash income. In times of low production and damaging weather such as drought, flood, hail and windstorms, crop insurance enables farm families to meet their financial obligations— both business and personal, and helps ensure the survival of the farm business.
Why Buy from Farm Credit?
No one knows agriculture like Farm Credit. When the Farm Service Agency stopped selling crop insurance in 1997, it became necessary for farmers to rely on private insurance companies for their crop insurance needs. Who better to fill that need than an ag expert like Farm Credit?
Today, we have full-time experienced crop insurance agents on staff. That’s their only job—crop insurance. You won’t find a more knowledgeable, helpful staff. They don’t just want to be your agent; they want to be a resource for you, a consultant on your team.
