Farm Credit offers the following types of crop insurance:
Our Yield Protection (YP) policy insures producers against production losses due to a covered cause of loss such as drought, excessive moisture, hail, disease or wildlife. YP policies also provide replant, late planting, and prevented planting coverage. The producer selects the percentage of their average yield they would like to insure ranging from 50-85%. A loss would occur when the harvested yield is less than the guaranteed yield on the policy as the result of a covered cause of loss.
Our Revenue Protection (RP) policy offers the same coverage as a YP policy with the addition of up or downside price protection. Both plans utilize the CBOT to establish the projected and harvest prices.
Additional Coverages Available
- Livestock Gross Margin (LGM)
- Pasture, Rangeland & Forage (PRF) Hail policies
- Organic crops, orchards, vineyards, nurseries, processing, and/or fresh market vegetables, tobacco, livestock risk protection
While these are just a few types of policies we can use, there are many other options available to help us tailor a policy that will address your operation’s unique needs.
