Crop Insurance Caps

K-State agricultural economist Mykel Taylor goes over K-State's new analysis of two proposed changes to the federal crop insurance program, and what those would mean for all producers who utilize crop insurance:  specifically, the suggested cap on crop insurance eligibility based on a farm's adjusted gross income, and a cap on the cost-share on crop insurance premiums.
