In-synch with your Growing Agribusiness
We all depend on American agriculture's survival and growth, yet few of us understand the unique challenges facing today's farmers.

A commitment to provide comprehensive agriculture insurance to American farmers is the foundation of Columbia Insurance Group .
What's covered in Washington & Oregon Agriculture Insurance?
Farming has always been a risky business. Many uncontrollable factors come into play - weather, vermin, or other natural catastrophes - that can destroy a crop and put the farmer in a bad financial situation. A variety of Washington & Oregon agriculture insurance options are available to farmers so they can receive compensation in the event of a poor season or catastrophic natural event:
- Risk Reduction with Crop Insurance: A key element of risk reduction for farmers is crop insurance.
- Crop insurance - subsidized and regulated by the USDA-Risk Management Agency - is an important tool in managing financial risk associated with farming. It is intended to help farmers survive disasters and return to profitability, providing they purchase an adequate amount of protection.
- Livestock Insurance - The raising and farming of livestock can be just as risky as growing crops. You face the same kinds of challenges - fluctuating market prices, reduced yields (as in dairy farming), and the sickness or death of your animals. Livestock insurance can provide you with invaluable coverage in case of these kinds of challenges.
- Property and Casualty (P&C) Insurance - P&C insurance covers an agribusiness's buildings and their contents -- money and securities, accounts-receivable records, inventory, furniture, machinery and supplies when damage, theft, or loss occurs. If you hire employees to work for you, you need P&C insurance in case of injury on your property.
