Crop insurance has been the number one priority for the National Association of Wheat Growers throughout this farm bill process and feels confident that this bill provides our growers with the necessary tools to effectively and efficiently feed the nation.

The association is supportive of the new Supplemental Coverage Option which will enable producers to buy supplemental area-wide coverage in addition to their traditional multi-peril individual farm coverage.

The option will use a county-level trigger to insure crops against losses that are not covered by their individual policies providing our growers with additional options.
