Crop Insurance Is Vital to Delaware’s Agricultural Sector
“Crop insurance is a valuable risk management tool farmers use in their business. Farmers rely on crop insurance to recuperate in years when severe weather or high production costs lead to big losses. They’re not making money but it helps them with losses so they can go that one more year.” – Kitty Holtz, Clayton, Delaware
- In 2017, farmers purchased 100 crop insurance policies to cover 316,646 acres providing $115.8 million in liability protection.
