Specialty crop producers' crop insurance decisions

Virtually all the studies reviewed examined the crop insurance participation decision of midwestern producers of corn, soybeans, or other feed grains. Such program crops also have price or income support programs, which make crop producers less vulnerable to risk. Therefore, the role and implication of crop insurance for program crops may be different from those for non-program crops including specialty crops. Consequently, the results from the studies for program crops may not be applicable to specialty crop cases. The objective of this study is to analyze factors affecting specialty crop producersÂ’ uses of crop insurance as a risk management tool.
