Crop Insurance Reform
Crop insurance and the need for reform came to our attention over 10 years ago. Farmers across the Great Plains and Midwest began to report that federally subsidized crop insurance was putting them at a disadvantage. Meanwhile, programs that help strengthen opportuntiies for small and mid-sized family farms and ranches have witnessed funding cuts.
We believe crop insurance is an important tool to help farmers mitigate risk. But it can be much better! You can help to make sure it also serves beginning, small, and mid-size farms.
