Agri-Pulse, All things Farming

Farming's Agri-Pulse - Washington Week in Review 9/28/18 ... -farm-bill

I knew large farms have crop loss insurance, but I wonder about a few things.
What does their insurance cost with rising crop losses?
How much has their insurance costs risen in past couple years?
At what point would their insurance companies stop insuring farm crops?
Although it is a good reporting site on Farming issues, it bothers me greatly that they have not mentioned Grand Solar Minimum and its connection to recent and past couple years of food crop losses.

That led to FarmDocDaily on Crop Insurance rates.
I cannot summarize their different percentage crop loss insurance and rates documentation, but their 85% loss insurance is very high for large scale farmers per acre and the Fed-Gov has put a $40K cap on their subsidy programs. ... emium.html

Then led to Market Prices
Wheat Although they show a drop in price for each time period, that is misleading. The price on Dec 18, 2017 was 510, then July 20, 2018 it is 609.
