Perspective: For corn and soybeans, the combination of the premium adjustments that RMA implemented for the 2012 crop year and the lower projected prices will lower crop insurance costs for farmers. In some cases, the decline in premiums on a per-acre basis for 2012 compared to 2011 could be around one-third, some producers note.
