Crop insurance insures farmers against loss to their crops due to natural disasters, such as hail, drought, and floods. There are two types of crop insurance:
- Multi-peril crop insurance
- Crop-Hail insurance
A Federal multi-peril policy covers the broad perils of drought, flood, insects, disease, etc., It also guarantees the farmer a certain yeild per acre, such as 80 or 100 bushels per acre at a set price per bushel.
Crop-Hail insurance covers only hail losses, and pays a set dollar amount per acre if there is a loss.
