Risk Management Programs

Rainfall Index - Pasture, Rangeland and Forage Insurance (RI-PRF)

RI-PRF provides protection against lack of precipitation. Coverage can be purchased by landlords, tenants, and owner/ operators for those acres important to their haying or grazing operation. Producers may select from a variety of coverage levels, productivity factors and two-month index intervals to personalize their plan. When the final grid index falls below your trigger grid index, you may receive an indemnity.


  • RI-PRF is a federally reinsured program
  • RI-PRF may cover all or a portion of the insured’s acreage, providing flexibility when deciding how to cover specific risk
  • Plan uses long-term, historical, gridded precipitation data for the grid ID and index interval
  • Rainfall Index, Pasture, Rangeland and Forage Insurance
