“In the early 80’s I was approached by Tony Scurich himself about his insurance opportunities and I really loved the idea of a local family -owned business. We were insured with Scurich Insurance for our previous business so when we opened Lakeside Organic Garden, it was a no brainer who to insure with. If I had to rate Scurich Insurance I would rate them as an 11 on a scale from 1-10 because of their excellent customer service and the ease of trusting them through their consistent honesty. “Joanne, Lakeside Organic Gardens
“In 2009, I started looking for insurance for my company, MKM farms. We’re located in Salinas, CA. Scurich Insurance contacted me and I had to take it as a sign for perfect timing. Not only did I save money when I switched from the provider I was with, but I quickly learned that Scurich Insurance provides great customer service which really adds to the overall appeal of the business. Working directly with Mike and Tony, the owners, is an awesome amenity as well. It just adds to the comfort of knowing things will get done.”Doug Iwamoto, MKM Farms, Inc.

Agriculture Insurance

Agriculture Insurance is purchased by agricultural producers, including farmers, ranchers, and others to protect themselves against either the loss of their crops due to natural disasters, such as hail, drought, and floods, or the loss of revenue due to declines in the prices of agricultural commodities. The two general categories of crop insurance are called crop-yield insurance and crop-revenue insurance.

 

  • Crop-yield insurance  There are two main classes of crop-yield insurance:
  • Crop-hail insurance is generally available from private insurers (in countries with private sectors) because hail is a narrow peril that occurs in a limited place and its accumulated losses tend not to overwhelm the capital reserves of private insurers. The earliest crop-hail programs were begun by farmers cooperatives in France and Germany in the 1820s.
  • Multi-peril crop insurance (MPCI): covers the broad perils of drought, flood, insects, disease, etc., which may affect many insureds at the same time and present the insurer with excessive losses. To make this class of insurance, the perils are often bundled together in a single policy, called a multi-peril crop insurance (MPCI) policy. MPCI coverage is usually offered by a government insurer and premiums are usually partially subsidized by the government. The earliest MPCI program was first implemented by the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC), an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in 1938. The FCIC program has been managed by the Risk Management Agency (RMA), also a U.S. Department of Agriculture agency, since 1996.

From Acorns to Zucchini

As seen in: Property Casualty 360 4/25/2012 By Melissa Hillebrand

There is a federal insurance program in place that insurance agents use that specialize in Agriculture Insurance.  Throughout the years this insurance program has gone through many different changes like cut backs like a lot of other programs are going though as well.  The Federal Crop Insurance Program’s (FCIP) current bill with the Congress expired this September and that may mean even more cut backs for the program. Originally when the program was created during the depression era to help those farmers recover from the damages that occurred from the Dust Bowl.

The 2012 farm bill that is  before congress would take the place of the current legislation that was passed back in 2008. The legislation that was passed in 2008 made it so that there was a reduction in the appropriation that is given to insurers that  sale and serve crop insurance policies and the administrative fees  for coverage with the policies are increased for farmers.  The National Association of Farm Service Agency (FSA) County Office Employees (NASCOE) wants Congress to replace the private insurance agents with federal government employees (FSA), although there is much debate over where or not federal employees or private insurance agents should be the ones that handle the policies.

Although there is a significant amount of fear surrounding the Obama administration proposed plan to decrease the amount of subsidies to the industry by $8 billion over the course of 10 years, a reduction of ROI for crop insurers to 12% and having a reduction in producer-premium subsidies and how these changes will in turn affect farmers.

Farmers Seek More Renewable Energy

Innovative farmers have been producing renewable energy using byproducts such as walnut hulls and methane for years, and their efforts to earn credits from utility companies for some of that energy could soon become easier.

A bill passed by the Legislature would allow farmers to connect on-farm renewable-energy systems together and then connect them to the grid. Previously, only solar, wind and fuel cell generators have had a streamlined path to connect.

-California Farm Bureau Federation
