Mexico Sees 16% Rise in Insured Crop Land

Mexico's agriculture ministry will make efforts to assist producers in acquiring insurance against natural disasters for 9.4 million hectares (23.2 million acres) of crops in 2012, representing a 16 percent increase in insured land from last year.

Corn and beans are among the crops most likely to benefit from the increase in insurance coverage, according to the ministry's Public Information Office, due to their vulnerability to freezing and drought.
