Evaluating a Proposed Modification to Federal Crop Insurance

A proposed modification to the Federal Crop Insurance Program would allow crop producers to simultaneously purchase both a farm-level crop insurance policy and a supplemental county-level crop insurance policy. This study evaluates this proposal for representative cotton farms in Georgia. The goal is to test whether the additional risk protection provided by the supplemental policy is considered to be worth the additional cost.
