What's new for Crop Insurance in 2021?
Changes introduced for the 2021 year will help ensure the Crop Insurance Program is meeting the risk management needs of Saskatchewan farmers and ranchers.
- Increased Coverage for Native Forage
- Coverage for the Native Forage Establishment Benefit Option is increasing from $75 per acre to $200 per acre.

- Additional Forage Coverage Options
- Crop Insurance customers can now insure their tame hay acres under the Forage Rainfall Insurance Program (FRIP) or the Multi-Peril Crop Insurance Program.
- Under FRIP, payments will now be calculated based on rainfall levels instead of overall yields.
