Crop Insurance: Getting the Right Coverage

Graphic of woman and man next to dark green stalks of corn.

Crop insurance is regulated by the federal government and that means crop insurance prices are regulated, too. So more than getting the best price, you should focus on getting the right crop insurance coverage – one that’s based on the risk-bearing ability and working capital needs of your operation.

No one delivers crop insurance like Farm Credit Services of America.

Crop insurance prices are regulated by the federal government. So while there may not be a difference in the cost of crop insurance plans, there is a difference in having a plan that’s right for you.

And that can be the most expensive difference of all.

As a customer-owned ag lender, Farm Credit Services of America truly understands the importance of risk management in today’s agriculture. That’s why we work so hard to deliver the personalized crop and revenue protection you need for the peace of mind you want.

No one delivers crop insurance like us -- here are five reasons why:

  1. Core Expertise – We employ only full-time crop insurance officers – people who spend every working day of every week in the year planning, learning and studying crop insurance. They offer nothing else – no property insurance, no casualty insurance or health plans.
  2. Intense Training – Our crop insurance officers participate in one of the most intensive training programs in the business. They are well-informed, up-to-date and committed. In fact, because we write policies with several companies, we can leverage their insights for our customers.
  3. Better Informed – Not only do we understand crop insurance, we’ll make sure you understand your plan, too, including how to maximize benefits and use them to your best advantage.
  4. Advanced Technology – Discover Optimum, the most comprehensive decision tool in the industry that literally compares hundreds of coverage options, scenarios and outcomes based on your specific needs and priorities. Optimum can look at what plan offers the highest net return, the likelihood of a claim, as well the comparison of your yields versus the county average.
  5. Honesty and Integrity – We are a cooperative that’s dedicated to the success of our customers. And that means our focus is helping you choose a plan that’s best for you and no one else. If it isn’t right for you, it isn’t right for us.

When you add it all up, you can understand why Farm Credit Services of America has grown to be the largest crop insurance agency in its market.
