Hail Insurance

An insurance policy that provides coverage for damage to agricultural crops due to hail. Hail insurance helps reduce the weather-related uncertainty that farmers experience. In the event of an insured loss, damaged crops are compensated for in proportion of the total crop. As with all insurance, one pays a premium for hail insurance coverage.
