WeatherBill announced that growers have until March 15, 2011, to lock in Total Weather Insurance coverage for full-season multi-peril protection.

"There's never been a better time to be an American farmer, but with historically high yields and the investments required to achieve them, individual growers often find themselves exposed to unprecedented financial risk," said David Friedberg, founder and CEO of WeatherBill. "According to climatology experts and data from the National Weather Service, the 2011 crop year can expect to see a continuation of the La Nina weather patterns that will result in greater uncertainty heading into planting time and may impact crop production. Total Weather Insurance enables growers to protect themselves from bad weather that could decimate their profit for an entire season."
