How does the new farm bill affect crop insurance and farmers. The newly released version of “Crop Insurance: Just the Facts” website helps answers such questions, including major and minor policy changes, and includes introduction to new products like SCO and STAX.

“The 2014 Farm Bill is a turning point in federal policy towards agriculture, pivoting away from the traditional support mechanism paradigm of the past and into a risk management model that features crop insurance as farmers’ primary — or only — risk management tool,” noted Tom Zacharias, president of National Crop Insurance Services.

Crop Insurance: Just the Facts provides an A-to-Z overview of federal crop insurance and is on the Crop Insurance Keeps America Growing website page.

“This resource has proved invaluable to farmers, students and policy experts who need to better understand the nuts and bolts of crop insurance,” said Zacharias.
