Abstract

Crop insurers have limited ability to manage the risk of losses once premiums are set and farmers have taken out their policies. Any additional instruments that enhance the ability for insurers to reduce their risk between when premiums are set and final yields are determined can help manage potential losses. The relationship between crop insurance losses and changes in futures prices are examined, and whether there is the potential to hedge crop insurance losses with grain futures contracts.
