Crop Insurance Professionals Association board chairman William Cole says there’s always work being done to improve the crop insurance program. “Our crop insurance program is tied up with the Farm Service Agency programs. We’re constantly working at ways of which we can help out with the farm program sign-ups that are coming along.” Cole has been involved in crops insurance for 25 years and says a lot has changed in that time. “The program has evolved to where we had very little participation in the mid-90s and the rates were too high. Working with the Risk Management Agency, we’ve changed the program and have great participation. Every year we’re constantly getting more products out and covering the risk farmers experience.” Watch our interview with Cole.
