Major Crop Insurance Changes for 2011 Crop Year – Combo’s Product Released for 2011 Crop Insurance Year

After several years of planning, the Risk Management Agency will release the COMBO product for use in insuring crops for the 2011 cropping year. The first experience many producers will have with the Combo product will be when insuring wheat for 2011. The COMBO product is meant to simplify crop insurance choices, replacing many individual farm-level products with one product: the COMBO product. The release of the COMBO product does not impact county level plans such as Group Risk Plan (GRP) or Group Risk Income Plan (GRIP).
