USDA announces new crop insurance plans

Two of the most comprehensive risk management safety-net programs are being improved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture

Micro Farm and Whole-Farm Revenue Protection make them more accessible for America's farmers.

This includes the doubled of the maximum insurable income under WFRP.

Now $17 Million, which is more than triple the size of eligible farm operations for Micro Farm.

Now $350,000, and reduced paperwork requirements for WFRP

These improvements were made in response to feedback from USDA's Risk team.

Management Agency understands the importance of these insurance options for many producers, such as specialty crops and organic producers.

WFRP provides protection for all eligible commodities in a farm's insurance policy.

Producers can now insure up to $17 million of revenue (previously $8.5 million).
