Australian farmers operate in one of the riskiest environments in the world. Farming itself is already a risky industry to be in, but with the added risks of the unpredictable and severe Australian weather, it can become extremely difficult to manage.
Crop insurance offers financial protection to agricultural producers against the loss of your crops. This coverage helps to protect your investment in the event of hail, fire, livestock intrusion, overspray, transit and storage loss throughout the growing season.

We believe that you and your crops are important to the continued success of your business. The main point for farmers is to secure and keep their business going in the event crops are damaged and the cost incurred behind it. Farmers value their crops, and if something unexpected happens when they least expect it – it can result in a devastating blow.
However, with crop insurance, this policy helps to eliminate your worries and allows you to focus and continue doing your best in your business. Our brokers have years of solid experience in the farming industry and can guide you through the options of crop insurance and help you find the best solution for your situation.
Why Is Crop Insurance Important?
A diversity of hazards related to weather, pests and diseases determine production in ways that are outside the control of farmers. And, because Australia is one of the riskiest agricultural countries in the world in terms of agricultural production, it’s extremely important to have a crop insurance policy in place.
At East West Insurance Brokers, we have a long and proud history of looking after Australian farmers and delivering a personalised service. Fire, hail, damage by livestock and flooding can be unpredictable, but having a crop insurance policy in place will significantly reduce financial stress and will bring better peace of mind to Australian farmers.
Insured growers face fewer downside risks to their income. This means they’re more likely to make better cropping decision rather than trying hard to cut corners to keep up with their financial constraints.
