The Crop Insurance Advantage

Crop insurance helps producers manage risk. In exchange for annual premiums, crop insurance plans provide payments called "indemnities" when yields or revenues fall below covered levels. On average, over the past five years, New York producers received $2.39 in indemnities for every $1 they paid in premiums.
