Watching one of the Welker videos the other day where they gave up harvesting hundreds of acres of peas that had been droughted or 'hailed out' saying that they had left strips in even the good fields so that the Assessor could look at them for insurance payout made me wonder how much this scheme costs the farmer.

How does it work anyway, hail insurance is available here but is hugely expensive and is not backed by the Government at all and, despite losing over 75% of my crops one year in the last 30 I reckon to be still ahead.
