MPCI in all of its forms provides protection against crop yield loss by allowing policy holders to insure a chosen percentage of their Actual Production History (APH). Policies protect a variety of crops against all natural perils.
Crop-Hail products insure against the perils of hail, fire, lightning and transit. These products allow the grower added flexibility when it comes to protecting one's investment. Policies include various coverage levels and deductibles. Within the crop insurance field it has long been assumed that your MPCI covers your expenses and your Crop-Hail covers your profits.
