Crop Insurance

Crop Insurance is part of suite of business risk management programs under the Growing Forward 2 Agreement. Crop Insurance provides insurance for crops that experience a loss in yield, whether it is due to an insurable cause of loss in the quality or quantity of the insured crop. The insurance provides coverage in the event a crop fails to grow or excess moisture prevents a crop from being seeded. Producers can select from a variety of coverage levels, price options and program options.


The multi-peril insurance program offers coverage on a wide range of crops and varieties. Insurance that's as unique as your farm.



Organic-specific coverage that will address the special risk and higher crop values associated with organic production.



SCIC has a program for producers who grow forages for seed, sale or feed. Regardless of your operation, SCIC has options to meet your needs.


Weather Derivative

Precipitation and temperature values during the growing season are the basis for the weather-based programs offered by SCIC.
