HELENA — With hailstorms picking up throughout the state, the Montana Department of Agriculture is reminding producers to get covered through the State Hail Insurance Program.

Producers can insure crops against hail damage at the maximum coverage rate of $75 per acre for dryland and $114 per acre for irrigated land.
