Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

What is the Agricultural Insurance Industry?

Firms in this industry provide agricultural insurance, also known as farm or crop insurance. Agricultural insurance is purchased by agricultural producers to protect against either the loss of their crops due to natural disasters, such as hail, drought and floods, or the loss of revenue due to related farm-specific risks.
