Crop Insurance Today Third Quarter 2021 - 28

mid-December, more than $2 billion had been
paid, ensuring farmers would be able to stay in
business and plant crops the following year. In
2019, farmers across the Midwest were unable
to plant 18.7 million acres due to excessive moisture
in the winter and early spring. By mid-July
2019, farmers were paid roughly $500 million in
Prevented Planting indemnities and by the end
of October, more than $4 billion had been paid.
Both examples demonstrate how quickly the crop
insurance industry can respond when disasters
hit. Both examples also demonstrate the benefit
of incentivized service.

In This Issue
This summer, NCIS had the honor of hosting
students from three 1890 universities for a
summer long virtual internship. The program
provided the interns with an in-depth look at
how the crop insurance program works and its
importance to America's farmers and ranchers.
You can learn more about Paris, Erikton, and
Niaviana in their article beginning on page 12
and read about what they learned during their 10
weeks with NCIS.
Alyssa Milliken, who has been an NCIS intern
the last couple of years, wrote an article covering
the recent Train the Trainer virtual conference
held in July. There was a lot of important information
shared during that event, including hearing
from special guest speaker, Karis Gutter, on
the importance of diversity in the workplace.
Also, in this issue we provide the 2020 NCIS
agronomic research results from 12 projects
across the United States. These results, in conjunction
with those from previous projects, are
used to verify and improve current NCIS loss
adjustment procedures. The NCIS agronomic research
program is vital to ensure claims are paid
accurately and fairly.
We also introduce you to fourth generation
farmer, Sarah Zost, from Pennsylvania. She and
her family rely on crop insurance to help their
farm survive if disaster strikes, as it did in 2020.
Lastly, we provide the final 2020 premium and
loss statistics for both the Federal and Crop-Hail
insurance programs. We hope that you enjoy all
that this issue has to offer.
