Referencing a FCSAmerica study crediting crop insurance with saving 22,000 jobs and $2.2 billion in Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wyoming alone, Dr. Tom Zacharias, president of National Crop Insurance Services (NCIS) presents an overall of the risks farmers face in producing a crop.
FCSAmerica supports the public/private partnership that exists between the Federal government and the private sector. A strong crop insurance program works for producers and boosts other sectors of the economy. It’s important to publicize the benefits and dispel the myths of crop insurance, as shown in the video.
