Regarding Crop Insurance and Risk Management
The role of USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) is to help producers manage their business risks through effective, market-based risk management solutions. RMA’s mission is to promote, support, and regulate sound risk management solutions to preserve and strengthen the economic stability of America’s agricultural producers. As part of this mission, RMA operates and manages the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC). RMA was created in 1996; the FCIC was founded in 1938.
USDA through RMA and the County Farm Service Agency Offices provide growers the opportunity of protection for almost all crops and some livestock production.
– Individual Crop Policies – available for many crops
– Producers with 3 years of production history may import policies from other counties for crop protection not generally available in their county
– Whole farm gross revenue protection
