Crop insurance can make the difference between survival and success for farmers. Given that no one can control Mother Nature, it is essential for farmers to have insurance in case of weather or other uncontrollable conditions that damage or wipe out their crops or prevent them from being planted. The U.S. Department of Agriculture provides different types of assistance to insured crops per county. The USCA ensures that all canola-growing counties are eligible to receive written insurance agreements. The USDA’s Risk Management Agency offers insurance to most canola-growing states.
