The Business, Entrepreneurship & Tax Law Review


Chad G. Marzen


The federal crop insurance program is a critical risk management tool for agricultural producers which also provides an important safety net for farmers. Crop insurance seeks to protect against risks posed by adverse weather, drought, disease, and especially assists newer farmers who face the risk of potentially being pushed out of agriculture due to catastrophic events. In an era where bipartisanship is difficult to achieve, crop insurance has traditionally retained strong bipartisan support from Democratic, as well as Republican, lawmakers. This point was recently reaffirmed through Congress’ strong support of Farm Bills in 2014 and 2018.
