How Cash Crop Insurance Protects Your Farm
Cash crop farming can be a weather-dependent business. You can manage the risks that come with the weather with crop insurance to protect your investments.
Cash crop insurance is farm insurance that covers your home, buildings, equipment, machinery, and liability. Importantly, your crops will be covered.
Why is cash crop insurance needed?
Insurance for cash crops is farm insurance for a range of operations like wheat, corn, beans, hay, oats, rye, fruit, ginseng, vegetables, and other crops. You rotate between specific crops and sell them at the best times, but you also need to manage weather-related risks, like too much rain or not enough.
Cash crop insurance is for you if your farm:
- Is your main source of income
- Is a family-owned or independent corporation or partnership
- Has been in business for three years or longer
- Has management and quality control practices
- Has modern machinery and facilities
