Protect Your Crops through the USDA Risk Management Agency

Crop Insurance For American Farmers and Ranchers

The United States Department of Agricultureā€™s (USDA) Risk Management Agency (RMA), created in 1996, serves Americaā€™s agricultural producers through effective, market-based risk management tools to strengthen the economic stability of agricultural producers and rural communities. RMA is committed to increasing the availability and effectiveness of Federal crop insurance as a risk management tool. RMA manages the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) to provide innovative crop insurance products to Americaā€™s farmers and ranchers. Approved Insurance Providers (AIP) sell and service Federal crop insurance policies in every state and in Puerto Rico through a public-private partnership with RMA. RMA backs the AIPs who share the risks associated with catastrophic losses due to major weather events.

On Thursday, April 18, USDA RMA hosted a webinar with the Strengthening Cooperative Communities project at NCBA CLUSA. To rewatch the presentation and view the presentation slides, click below.
