Crop Insurance Is Vital to South Carolina’s Agricultural Sector

I have experienced three complete freezes that would have put me out of business without insurance. It wouldn’t have been just a matter of not paying my bank loans; it would have been a matter of not paying anybody. My crop insurance policy allowed me to cover at least part of my fixed expenses. It made the difference between starting over with a new crop or starting over with a new career. – Chalmers Carr, Ridge Spring, South Carolina
