In the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at NC State, there is a long history of applied research and extension efforts focusing on agricultural policy analysis, risk management, and crop insurance. There is always continuing interest among agricultural producers, county agents, policymakers, and other stakeholders about the impacts and implications of various agricultural policies and risk management tools on the agricultural economy.
This extension and outreach website aims to provide important information and resources regarding crop insurance issues that affect North Carolina.
