Established in 2000, Watts and Associates, Inc.’s Crop Insurance Division was awarded one of just four Base Contracts by the United States Government, arising
from the passage of The Agricultural Risk Protection Act of 2000. Since that time, Watts and Associates, Inc. has been awarded more than 35 contracts to provide
agriculture insurance feasibility analysis, product development, or product review for the U.S. Government. The Division has also provided these services for
entities such as the World Bank, the Canadian Government, the state of Montana, and private entities. These contracts have allowed Watts and Associates, Inc.
to work on a vast array of crops from avocados and cherries, to maple syrup and Christmas trees, to silage and forage, each presenting its own unique challenges.
Watts and Associates, Inc. prides itself in not only the quality of work (100% acceptance of all contracts), but also on innovation. On several occasions, Watts
and Associates, Inc. developed alternative approaches to risk management where seemingly no options existed to address the unique characteristics or limited
production of the proposed crops.
