Q&A online for crop insurance answers
Since the new 2014 farm bill was signed into law, questions have arisen about the new crop insurance aspects and its affect on farmers and those who sell to farmers.
Detailed answers to questions, ranging from major and minor policy changes, the introduction of new products including SCO and STAX and the link between the premium discount and conservation are all detailed in the newly released version of “Crop Insurance: Just the Facts.”
“The 2014 Farm Bill is a turning point in federal policy towards agriculture, pivoting away from the traditional support mechanism paradigm of the past and into a risk management model that features crop insurance as farmers’ primary—or only—risk management tool,” noted Tom Zacharias, president of National Crop Insurance Services.
“Crop Insurance: Just the Facts,” has already become a popular online resource that provides the A to Z overview of federal crop insurance and can be reached here, on the Crop Insurance Keeps America Growing website page “About Crop Insurance.” Because it is website based, the resource is being continuously updated as new questions arise.
