RMA's crop insurance program is designed to:

  • help producers when they need it the most;
  • provide a safety net compatible with international trade commitments;
  • create products and services that are market driven;
  • harness the strengths of both the public and private sectors; and
  • reflect the diversity of the farm sector in its outreach activities and programs.

Producers should consult a crop insurance agent to discuss their insurance options.
