A Portrait of Participants in Crop Insurance Programs

Farm Analysis Bulletins (FAB) are undertaken to provide a better understanding of Canadian agriculture at the farm level. Using data from various sources such as Census, Farm Financial Surveys (FFS), Taxfiler, NISA database, etc, FAB's provide information on farm situation as well as highlighting and discussing farm related issues. By using the Farm Financial Surveys (1999 to 2004), this bulletin provides characteristics of farmers participating in crop insurance programs. Charts and tables with a brief accompanying text are used to describe participants in crop insurance. Participation rate in crop insurance has grown slightly from 49% in 1999 to 53% in 2003.Grains and oilseeds farms are more likely to participate in crop insurance programs than other farm types.
