    Keep America Growing

    Everyone needs farmers, and farmers need affordable and reliable risk management tools. Crop insurance is the cornerstone of the farm safety net. It protects more than 490 million acres, ensuring that America’s farmers and ranchers can keep producing a safe and affordable supply of food. The farm safety net helps farmers survive the challenges of agriculture and adapt to our changing climate. We all have a vested interest in the success of American agriculture, and crop insurance keeps America growing. March 28, 2023
