Pasture, Rangeland, Forage Support Tool

Farmers, ranchers, and their crop insurance agents evaluate insurance programs to select appropriate coverage for managing risks.

This tool is targeted toward insurance providers so they may analyze a grower’s insurance options. The analyst may consider policy cost, potential indemnities, and subsidies available from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for targeted two-month windows throughout the calendar year.

The tool is intended to provide users with additional information of how the Pasture, Rangeland, Forage insurance program correlates to production risk. For example, a user may know his or her production records for a given year. With the decision tool, they can select that year and study how the index would have responded.
