Tomato plants growing in controlled environment.

The Controlled Environment (CE) crop insurance program offers insurance for destruction orders for plant diseases and contamination introduced from the environment even though all biosecurity protocols were followed.  In general, the CE crop insurance pilot program provides the following benefits to CE producers:

  • Offers crop insurance coverage through a simple application and policy renewal process similar to the Nursery Value Select (NVS) program;
  • Offers new crop insurance coverage specific to the disease and contamination risk in CE operations;
  • Offers insurance for CE producer-selected plant categories that are specific to CE and that are not in other nursery insurance programs; and
  • Allows CE operations to have single peril CE insurance to be purchased as a standalone policy or in conjunction with other nursery insurance.
