Crop Insurance Is Vital to Nebraska’s Agricultural Sector
“For us, Federal Crop Insurance is not a fountain of free money. Until , our farming operation had an 11-year crop insurance payment history that showed us paying in more in premiums than we received in indemnity payments. [In 2012], the insurance program appropriately covered a portion of our massive losses. We choose to participate and pay premiums every year to protect our operation from an event like the historic losses of 2012.” – Ben Steffan, farmer, Humboldt, Nebraska
- In 2020, crop insurance protected 17.8 million acres providing $7.5 billion in liability protection.

- Crop insurers paid $110.1 million to cover crop losses in 2020.
The private Crop-Hail insurance product provided an additional $2.9 billion in liability to protect Nebraska crops in 2020.
