NCAT ~ The National Center for Appropriate Technology
In the Spotlight
Your Input Is Needed
The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is working with the Rural Advancement Foundation International-USA (RAFI) to better understand experiences with crop insurance and with a new crop insurance product called Whole-Farm Revenue Protection. Whole-Farm Revenue Protection is a pilot crop insurance policy available for the 2015 crop insurance year. The policy provides crop insurance coverage based on a farm’s 5-year revenue history, and it enables a farm to insure more than one crop with one policy. You can help this effort by taking a few minutes to complete a survey. Click here to learn more and to take the survey. Thanks!
