If you have time and want to really delve deep into RMA and payouts and etc, here is a link to explore.

https://www.rma.usda.gov/SummaryOfBusiness

The key terms to compare are loss ratios-payouts/premium payed, indemnities-payout to producers and subsidy-amount kicked in by the government.. IIRC the general insurance industry(auto,life, etc like to run a sub .8 loss ratio and even lower when catastrophic losses are possible(see 2012 in crop insurance). The big problem is crop insurance is only a step up flood insurance and that is a business that most insurance companies don’t like to play in.
