North Dakota Senator John Hoeven emphasizes crop insurance is the Number One risk management tool for farmers. In addition, Congress responded to trade related losses, weather challenges and the pandemic with relief packages. At the Crop Insurance Professionals Association fall meeting, Hoeven said USDA is working overtime to provide that help to farmers. The quality loss formula for the WHIP program is still being determined. “The reason it has taken so long because we have these other things that have moved ahead of it whether it is MFP 2, CFAP 1 and CFAP 2. It is coming, but it just got behind these other programs, which are larger programs.”
