Risk Management Agency (RMA) provides agricultural producers with the opportunity to achieve financial stability through effective risk management tools. The primary goal of RMA is to foster, at reasonable cost, an environment of financial stability, safety, and confidence, enabling the American agricultural producer to manage the perils associated with nature and markets. The private sector crop insurance industry markets, delivers, and services many USDA risk management products. RMA also provides educational opportunities to help producers choose appropriate risk management tools. RMA (http://www.rma.usda.gov) works with the Farm Service Agency, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, and other private and public organizations to provide producers with an effective farm safety net.
The role of USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) is to help producers manage their business risks through effective, marketbased risk management solutions. RMA’s mission is to promote, support, and regulate sound risk management solutions to preserve and strengthen the economic stability of America’s agricultural producers. As part of this mission, RMA operates and manages the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC). RMA was created in 1996; the FCIC was founded in 1938. For more information, click HERE.
