Buying a crop insurance policy is a risk management tool available to agricultural producers. Let Tarpon Blue Insurance educate and inform you how a policy will work in conjunction with your other risk management strategies to ensure the best possible financial outcome each crop year.
Apiculture Pilot Insurance (API) provides a safety net for beekeepers’ primary income sources – honey, pollen collection, wax, and breeding stock. Apiculture systems consist of different types of plants or crops and often contain a mixture of different species, each with different conditions necessary to maintain plant growth over extended periods of time. Apiculture Pilot Insurance was designed to provide maximum flexibility to cover these diverse situations.
