Crop Insurance

As natives of the Land of Lincoln, we at Ogden Insurance value Illinois farmers. You do an important job, working to cultivate our earth and feed our families. Mother Nature often fights against you, but you carry on, doing the work you love. While we admire your dedication and hard work, we also understand that sometimes you need more to keep going. That’s why we specialize in insuring farmers. We work alongside our crop insurance companies to provide assistance to farmers in times of plenty and times of drought.

A Brief History of Federal Crop Insurance

During the Great Depression, many farmers considered themselves immune to fallout from economic downturns since they provided their own food. When the Dust Bowl struck, many of these farmers and their families fell on difficult times. As a part of his New Deal, President Franklin D. Roosevelt focused on subsidizing farming operations. In 1980, the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) was expanded, and in 1994, a law was passed requiring farmers to participate in the program. Although participation in FCIC is no longer mandatory, this government program continues to provide protection and security to many farmers.
