The Crop Insurance R&D Institute: Risk Management for North Carolina Farmers

Rural Advancement Foundation International-USA (RAFI-USA)
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to assist with the development of a new institute that will create insurance products for crops that are currently uninsured or underinsured. The institute will begin by developing a crop insurance product for strawberries, an underinsured crop with an annual value of over $20 million in North Carolina. The development of new crop insurance policies is increasingly important as North Carolina farmers transition from traditional production models to more diverse products and marketplaces.
