Failure to Fire: Investigating Farm Machinery Losses

May 31, 2023

Watch Now


The loss or damage of farm machinery can have serious implications for both farmers and insurers. The time-sensitive nature of farming means crops need to be planted, harvested, and processed at specific times. Losses and damages can cause delays which can greatly impact a farmer’s bottom line. Insurers, in turn, may have to reimburse famers for lost income and replace expensive machinery, not to mention liability issues which can also arise in these situations.

In this webinar, we will be reviewing case studies that examine failures in farming machinery that lead to fires.
