Protecting Your Investment with Crop Insurance
Because of volatile commodity prices and increasing input costs, it is more important than ever to protect your investment in your growing crops with crop insurance. Crop insurance protection is available for most agronomic crops through a wide variety of plans, including crop-specific policies providing yield or revenue protection, whole-farm coverage based on adjusted gross revenue, and the new group risk pasture and forage plan based on a rainfall index. Most plans also offer optional coverage for prevented planting. More information of crop insurance for field crops can be found in the publication Crop Insurance for Pennsylvania Field Crops, available from your local Penn State Cooperative Extension office or on the Pennsylvania Crop Insurance Education Web site, extension.psu.edu/crop-insurance.
