The USDA Risk Management Agency’s (RMA) Apiculture Insurance Program (API) is designed to provide insurance coverage for your colonies. Coverage under this program helps to protect you against losses due to lack of rain. Payment for losses are determined based on the Rainfall Index, which is a comprehensive dataset of precipitation amounts throughout the country. Because indemnity is not calculated based on actual honey production, claims may be automatically processed without the need for adjusters.
Participation in the API program is very straightforward. With the help of an Apiculture Specialist, you will choose the eligible grids in which your eligible colonies are placed. You then choose two or more separate index intervals during which precipitation is important to your operation. For each grid you have elected to cover, actual precipitation amounts are compared to the trigger grid indices. If any of the grids had rainfall less than the trigger index, you may receive an indemnity.
