Conclusion

The 2019 crop year brought RMA, AIPs,
and farmers an unprecedented number of agronomic and economic challenges on various

fronts of the planting and harvest season, but
the Federal crop insurance program and its
private-sector delivery partners successfully
met those challenges head on. Combined with
ongoing trade issues, low commodity prices,
and the nation's challenges stemming from the
coronavirus, RMA, AIPs and producers will
continue to confront new and complex issues
that emerge in agriculture. Along with assistance and support from NCIS, all program
partners will work together so that the Federal
crop insurance program continues its mission
of promoting the nation's welfare by improving
the economic stability of agriculture through
a sound, efficient, and effective system of
crop insurance.
