WASHINGTON — In a demonstration of the up-and-down nature of the crop insurance industry, payments to farmers for crop losses in 2011 have totaled $9.1 billion so far, the highest in American history, according to charts released recently by the U.S Department of Agriculture Risk Management Agency.
The total value of the crops produced by North Dakota farmers in 2009 fell off after two record years, but still was the third highest in history by a long shot.
