According to the USDA, the definition of Crop Insurance is:
Management of yield or price risk through the purchase of crop insurance transfers risk from you to others for a price which is stated as an insurance premium. Crop insurance is an example of a risk management tool that not only protects against losses but also offers the opportunity for more consistent gains. When used with a sound marketing program, crop insurance can stabilize revenues and potentially increase average annual profits.
Crop Insurance is an essential element for lowering production risk as part of your agricultural risk management strategy. When it comes to selecting crop insurance, there are a vast number of programs offering various protection and coverage levels, are not applicable to all product, and vary from state-to-state.
