This spring’s crop insurance price will easily hit a new record for soybeans at an estimated $14.32. The previous record was in 2011 for $13.49. The crop insurance price of corn will be the second highest on record this spring, at an estimated $5.89, second only to 2011’s $6.01. The ongoing Russia-Ukraine crisis has added uncertainty to the already volatile price action Monday.
