What Does Crop Insurance Cover?
Crop insurance may cover several events that could impact your bottom line. Two types of coverage are common.
Multiple peril crop insurance (MPCI)
Multiple peril crop insurance is part of the federal crop insurance program (FCIP) and is one of the farm safety net programs. It is federally subsidized and has specific deadlines and regulations. There are different types of MPCI, but in general, it may cover crop losses due to natural hazards, such as high winds, drought, frost, insect damage, fires, flooding and disease. It may also provide revenue protection due to changing market conditions and other endorsements (e.g., Supplemental Coverage Option) may be available.
Crop-hail insurance is a type of private crop insurance and isn’t part of the FCIP. It may cover damage from hail or other named perils (e.g., fire), and farmers may secure it to supplement MPCI. It typically may be purchased on a per-acre basis and at any time during the growing season.
Make sure to work with your agent to discuss specific coverages, limits and exclusions. We can help ensure you are selecting the insurance that meets your needs.
