Crop Insurance Survey

Dear farmer,

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to complete this survey! 

This goals of this project are to examine:

  • Methods vegetable and fruit growers are using to manage production risk
  • Vegetable and fruit farmers' experience with, and perception of, crop insurance policies
  • How well crop insurance programs serve vegetable and fruit growers


Responses are being collected from vegetable and fruit farmers in the Northeast.

Results will be shared widely and used to inform farmers, technical service providers, program staff, and policymakers about the effectiveness of crop insurance from farmers’ perspectives and to generate suggestions for program improvements.  The survey takes about 5 minutes to complete.  

Upon completion of this survey, you can choose to enter a drawing to win a $50 Visa Gift Card!
