|Title: ||The SURE Program and Its Interaction with Other Federal Farm Programs|
|Authors: ||Ubilava, David|

|Keywords: ||crop insurance|
|Issue Date: ||2011|
|Abstract: ||We investigate potential effects of the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments (SURE)
program introduced in the 2008 Farm Bill. Results suggest little impact on optimal crop insurance
purchase decisions, though the SURE program does seem to provide an incentive for mid-level
insurance coverage. For producers in the price counter-cyclical payment (PCCP) program, SURE
payments are actually higher (lower) when commodity prices are high (low). This is not the case
for producers in the Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) program.|
