Crop Insurance

Crop Insurance is one of the business risk management programs offered under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership agreement on agriculture policy. Crop Insurance provides insurance for crops that experience a loss in yield, whether it is due to an insurable cause of loss in the quality or quantity of the insured crop. The insurance provides coverage in the event a crop fails to grow or excess moisture prevents a crop from being seeded. Producers can select from a variety of coverage levels, price options and program options.
