NY Crop Insurance Availability by County & Crop

Apiculture, Dairy-RP, LGM, Nursery, PRF and WFRP policies are available throughout the entire state. Here is a table showing RMA crop insurance availability by county and crop in New York State.  

If a crop is not covered in your county, you may still be eligible for a written agreement for that crop. Please contact an insurance agent to see if this is an option for you.

More information about crop insurance is available through Cornell's New York Crop Insurance Education Program.

Beginning Producer Benefits for Crop Insurance

A qualifying beginning producer can potentially receive benefits in the crop insurance program. These benefits are designed to help start your operation. In this article, Stephen Hadcock, Capital Area Agriculture and Horticulture Program, outlines the 4 crop insurance benefits available to beginning producers.
1) An exemption from paying the administrative fee for catastrophic coverage and additional coverage.
2) Receive an additional 10 percentage points of premium subsidy for additional coverage policies with a subsidy premium.
3) Utilize the actual production history (APH) of a farming operation that producer was previously involved in.
4) Utilize 80% of an applicable T-yield, instead of the normal 60%, as a substitute Yield Adjustment.
