Risk Management/Crop Insurance Education Program
Whole Farm Revenue Coverage (WFRP) crop insurance provides producers with protection against low revenue from natural causes and market fluctuations. This insurance plan is tailored for any farm with up to $8.5 million in insured revenue, including farms with specialty or organic commodities (both crops and livestock), or those marketing to local, regional, farm-identity preserved, specialty, or direct markets.
To meet the eligibility criteria for WFRP coverage, you must: Be a U.S. citizen or resident; File a calendar-year or fiscal-year farm tax return; Have liability not exceeding $8.5 million; Have had same tax entity for 7 years (filed 5 consecutive years of Schedule F tax forms, plus previous year and insurance year) unless a change in tax entity is reviewed and approved by your insurance provider;
While you are not required to purchase individual crop insurance policies on any crop you grow, any coverage that you do purchase on individual incured crops must be purchased at the "buy-up" levels. You cannot insure any insured crops that you grow at the the catostrophic or CAT level.
