DOAG: Connecticut Farm Risk Management and Crop Insurance Program

Connecticut Farm Risk Management and Crop Insurance Program

 

The Connecticut Farm Risk Management and Crop Insurance Program is funded through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Risk Management Agency (RMA) to develop and provide Connecticut producers with educational programming on crop insurance and risk management.  The program is administered by a team comprising representatives from the Connecticut Department of Agriculture and the University of Connecticut.

 

The USDA has identified Connecticut as a state that has benefited less from crop insurance than many major agricultural producing states.  RMA offers a federally subsidized crop insurance program through private insurance companies.  Crop insurance covers disasters such as drought, hail, frost, hurricanes, excessive moisture, fire, insects & plant disease, and wildlife damage.
