CROP INSURANCE

Farmers operate in one of the riskiest environments in the world. In an already risky industry, the added risk of Australia’s unpredictable and severe weather can make things very difficult.

Crop insurance works differently than other types of insurance – it essentially evens out farm income over the years. Farmers pay premiums in profitable years in exchange for substantial payouts in poor harvest years.

Severe storms, hail or bushfire can devastate your crops during the growing season. We can provide you with a range of crop insurance services that cover multi-peril crop insurance, field insurance, wheat insurance and more.

No matter the size of your cropping operation, the number of fields on your farm or the number of different farms you own, Regional Insurance Professionals has crop insurance services designed for Western Australian farmers.

Our crop insurance solutions protect you from a range of risks including hail, fire, chemical overspray, harvested crop, grain or hay, livestock intrusion and straying livestock. There’s also alternatives to insure rainfall risks under water stress insurance for wheat and sorghum crops.

Crop insurance can provide many benefits, including managing capital and cash flow, reduced financial risk and peace of mind about the future of your farm.

HOW FARMERS CAN USE CROP INSURANCE TO THEIR ADVANTAGE

Insurance is generally seen as a cost rather than a tool to create positive outcomes. Insurance should be the cornerstone of your cropping decisions, It  allows you to make positive decisions for cropping program knowing that the community has your back, via their premiums in the pool of funds spreading the risk.

Crop Insurance is a Financial/ Risk management tool that farmers can use to share the risk with the community, insurers, international re insurers.

Traditional  cover is Fire and Hail insurance which will pay 100% of the yield that is damaged but only for the yield at the time of the damage. If a peril covered by the Multi-Peril reduces the yield, say from 3.0 to 1.0 tonnes per hectare (example used to make my math easier) you are only paid that yield at 1.0 per hectare for a Hail and Fire Claim, Which leaves you with only 33% of your hectare income, in a total loss situation.

Depending on how widely spread out your operation is, a total loss from Hail or Fire might be unlikely if, for example the properties are 20kms apart. In comparison a farmers operation that is together in one area, the chance of a total loss from Hail and Fire is possible and we have seen this before.

The limiting factor with Fire and Hail is the yield Farmers have nominated at the time of claim. Often this has been reduced to save insurance premiums and reflects actual yields.
