FARM INCOME PROTECTION
How does it work?
Members pay a protection fee for the winter broadacre hectares they want to cover. The pool of protection fees collected each season are then used to fund any claims. Claims are paid based on a financial assessment and paid out in February each year.
How are Individual Averages assessed?
Agri-Analytics analysis is based on income, not yield, which can be verified against cashbooks, tax returns and audited financial statements. Yield data cannot be independently verified and does not provide an accurate assessment of a grower’s potential income.
Initial offers of cover are at Category 1. This level covers 40 – 50% of a growers District or Individual Average income. Growers who have completed their Individual Assessment are then eligible for any category upgrade offers.
Category upgrades are offered based on the assessment of the growers farm management (usually assessed through production/agronomist plans and grain marketing plans but we may request additional information) and their AGSR (annual growing season rainfall) which is monitored through Latevo Crop Monitor.
Category 2 level covers up to 80% of a growers Individual Average income.
Category 3 level covers up to 100% of a growers Individual Average income.
