** Multi-peril crop insurance (MPCI) covers crop losses caused by natural events. **
* You can elect coverage ranging from 50% up to 85% in 5% increments.
* Your farms are set up in units. Each farm within a section that has the same shareholders is considered a unit. If you have multiple units, you may set up optional units, basic units, or enterprise units. If you have irrigated and non-irrigated land, you may qualify to separate them as different units. Multi County Enterprise unit only applies if you farm in 2 counties
