How Crop Insurance Works
Each year, AIPs work with the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) and agree to the terms of the Standard Reinsurance Agreement (SRA). Agents receive training and oversight from insurers.
The crop insurance company provides financial protection to the insured grower, farmer or rancher if they incur losses during the crop year. There are more than 100 insured commodities that include:
- Crops not planted annually, such as citrus or apples
- Livestock, such as cattle, pigs, chickens or lambs
What Does Crop Insurance Not Cover
- Crops, such as corn, soybeans and wheat
Crop insurance doesn't cover every peril that growers may face. For example, damage from pesticide drift, negligence, fire and losses due to failure to follow good farming practices are not covered by a typical crop insurance policy.
How Much Does Crop Insurance Cost
The FCIC sets crop insurance terms, conditions and rates. Crop insurance prices are consistent across the agricultural industry.
Your crop insurance premiums are set using the following formula:
Insured acres x per acre guarantee
(this figure is larger than the insured's individual expected yield, figured from the continuous previous years of acreage and production)
The insured entity must purchase insurance for all crop acreage in the county that they own or have a share in. The liability amount defined in the policy is the amount the insurer will pay if there is zero yield during a season.
