Margin Protection

Margin Protection (MP) is a crop insurance coverage option that provides you with coverage against an unexpected decrease in your operating margin caused by reduced county yields, reduced commodity prices, increased price of selected inputs or any combination of the mentioned.  

Pasture, Rangeland and Forage

The Risk Management Agency (RMA) Pasture, Rangeland, and Forage (RPF) Pilot Insurance Program is designed to provide insurance coverage on your perennial pasture, rangeland, or forage acres.  This innovative pilot program is based on precipitation, Rainfall Index. This program is designed to give you the ability to buy insurance protection for losses of forage produced for grazing or harvested for hay, which result in increased costs for feed, destocking, depopulating or other actions.

Supplemental Coverage Option

The Supplemental Coverage Option (SCO) is a county-level revenue based or yield-based optional endorsement that covers a portion of losses not covered by the same crop’s underlying crop insurance policy.

Prevented Planting

Prevented Planting (PP) provides a payment to growers when they are unable to plant their crops due to an insurable cause.

Crop Hail Insurance

Crop Hail coverage provides protection against physical damage from hail and/or fire.  Most FMH hail policies include extended coverages like fire and lightning, theft, vandalism and malicious mischief, and certain perils while in transit and storage at no additional cost to you.

Green Snap

Green Snap is an optional crop hail endorsement that provides protection against the severing or breaking over the corn stalks by windstorm at a joint above the brace roots and below the ear that will prevent the harvesting of the ears by mechanical equipment.  It is an elective addition to your crop hail policy. 

Revenue Accelerator Max Protection (RAMP)

RAMP gives you the opportunity to boost revenues at specific risk levels within your risk management plan, including coverage up to 95percent, RAMP supplements your MPCI coverage and is designed to help provide additional coverage when production and/or revenue losses are just over or under your MPCI guarantee. 

Replant Premier

Replant Premier is a private crop insurance coverage option that pays for your replant expenses in addition to any replant benefits you receive from your MPCI policy.
