Historical Causes of Loss

The following information and decision tool is provided as a means to assist growers in making crop insurance and risk management decisions.

To adequately assess production risk, growers need to know what perils are likely to affect their operation. This is especially relevant when growers expand their operation to new crops and into new geographic locations. The Historical Cause of Loss database allows users to access the percentage breakdown of crop insurance loss payments attributed to perils including: drought, excess moisture, hail, freeze, wind and other reported causes. This information may be valuable in deciding which insurance products best address the risks a grower may face for a specific crop/location.
