About the Stabilization Insurance Program

The Farm Income Stabilization Insurance (ASRA) program pays to the farm businesses a compensation when the average selling price is lower than the stabilized income.

The stabilized income is based on the production cost set through surveys that are conducted among specialized farm businesses in every sector; it is re-evaluated annually.

Five-year contract

When you enroll in ASRA, you commit to participating in the  program for a period of five years.

The entire production must be covered

You can insure one or more of your productions in the ASRA program. However, all productions insured must be insured in their entirety.
