Pollution Insurance

You do your best to operate an environmentally sound farm, but even the most cautious farmers can sometimes have an accident.

What type of environmental risks do farmers face? There are many environmental risks that farmers face. One example is that some farmers might have fuel tanks on their property or in a pick-up truck that is used to refuel equipment. Fuel tanks could rupture or get older and leak. If fuel leaks into crops, the ground, or any water source it could result in a large environmental issue. Another example is when manure farmers might use pesticides and herbicides to spray their crops. Spraying hazards or over spray and wind could take the spray to a neighboring field and cause ground fertility issues. Not to mention that manure brings flies which are covered in environmental peril.

How do you protect yourself and your business? The answer is simple, pollution insurance and procedures in place to prevent incidents from happening and to guide reactions when they do. With today’s increased awareness of environmental issues, even a small incident can become front page news in your local newspaper.
