    covered by Federal crop insurance, no ad-hoc disaster assistance was required. Even though large loss payments, like the ones in , do occur, the Federal crop insurance program is run at a loss ratio. This means that over time, premiums more than cover the indemnities paid out, meaning the program is operating in an actuarially sound. modern federal crop insurance program is a significant step in that evolution. The current version of federal crop insurance is a public-private partnership in which farmers, private insurance companies, and the federal government share the burden of agricultural risk stemming from drought, flood, disease, and other natural disasters. WHIP+ is only designed to provide assistance for production losses, however, if quality was taken into consideration under federal crop insurance or the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) policy, where production was further adjusted, the adjusted production will be used in calculating assistance under this program.
