crop insurance, government subsidy, farm lenders
The objective of this study was to provide insight to a crop insurance marketing question not previously studied – the viewpoint of lenders financing the premiums for Federal Crop Insurance. The viewpoint of lenders as to the extent of which their producers were participating in a crop insurance program could indicate the current and projected levels of participation, the extent to which lenders regard crop insurance programs as cost effective risk reducing strategies, and reasons for low participation. Thus, a survey of lenders was conducted to address the question of lenders' reaction to borrower participation in crop insurance programs.
