Perennial Crop Insurance
Working in agriculture requires the ability to withstand unpredictable events. To protect producers from perils that lead to production loss, Agriculture Financial Services Corporation (AFSC) provides a suite of perennial crop insurance programs.
- Perennial crop insurance programs provide a production guarantee for hay crops based on average historical yields and the coverage option selected.
- AFSC provides coverage for pasture based on conditions in the area, typically based upon an indicator of production loss, such as precipitation or satellite imagery. This coverage is not directly related to losses to insured fields.
- The Variable Price Benefit is included with Hay Insurance.
- A variety of programs are available to suit your operation’s perennial crop of choice.
