Crop Insurance Today May 2015 - (Page 44)

crop insurance is also something that bankers prefer."Bankers like to know that if you lose everything, something will be coming back to them," she said. "Most of the farmers around here purchase crop insurance as part of their basic risk management plans," she explained. Stroh noted that farmers pushed hard for crop insurance to become the centerpiece of farm risk management in the 2014 Farm Bill."It just makes good sense for farmers to purchase the protection they need," she said. Stroh also noted that the Farm Bill should be called the People's bill. "That's really what is it, because it not only helps farmers, but it feeds our children, feeds the poor and keeps the nation running," she added, "since farmers not only raise food, but fiber and fuel for the nation and the world." Stroh noted that it is important that crop insurance remains universally available, affordable and viable for farmers. "Farmers are major economic drivers of our economy, and crop insurance ensures that if disaster strikes, they have a clear pathway to recovery." "The cost of farming is so high that if we don't have some kind of backstop-like crop insurance-it would be impossible for many of us to get back on our feet after disaster strikes," she added. "I don't want our country to ever need to import our food from other countries. That will cost us our independence," she said.
