Ppt on crop production and management for class 8

Susan Witcraft Minneapolis Crop Insurance Overview of Primary Market in US June 6-7, 2005.

Multi-Peril Crop Insurance, Farmers managed their agricultural risk through Crop Hail coverages and various disaster relief programs. With the increased popularity of CRC coverages, and higher MPCI subsidies to the Farmer, Crop Hail insurance products started to decline as a risk management tool. With the profitability of MPCI business, ceding companies targeted growth in the MPCI class by offering agents more competitive hail products. 27 Guy Carpenter Crop Hail 2004/
