Producers reminded of hail insurance program

Print Article

The Montana Department of Agriculture is reminding producers to get covered through the State Hail Insurance Program. Montana producers can conveniently access and fill out applications for state hail insurance online by agr.mt.gov/Topics/Hail-Insurance.

Producers can insure crops against hail damage at the maximum coverage rate of $75 per acre for dryland and $114 per acre for irrigated land. Rates charged are a percentage of the insured amount and vary by county. A detailed list of rates by county and crop can be found on the program website.

An application for insurance and more details about payment options have been mailed to producers who previously purchased state hail insurance. Completed forms can be emailed, mailed or faxed to the department or used as a reference when you contact the office by phone.

Contact Information: Montana State Hail Insurance Program, P.O. Box 200201, Helena, MT 59620; Phone: 406-444-5429; Email: agrhail@mt.gov; Toll Free: 1-844-515-1571; Fax: 406-444-9422.
