Landmark Boosts Crop Insurance Range

Supplier News

Landmark - an AWB Company has today announced the launch of a new line of tailored crop insurance products, teaming up with one of Australia’s leading crop and forestry insurance providers, Agricola.

This will further enhance the comprehensive insurance available to Australia’s growers through existing relationships with leading insurers Wesfarmers Federation Insurance, National Transport Insurance and (other than in WA) CGU Insurance.

The first of the new products is Orchard Crop Insurance launched today, which is specifically designed to meet the particular requirements of today’s orchardists.

This will be followed in the coming weeks by the release of tailored insurance policies for cotton and forestry crops, as well as crop insurance for viticulturalists.

While Landmark is already a leader in facilitating the provision of insurance to the rural and regional market, the four new Agricola crop insurance policies augment the current range, which includes broad-acre crop insurance for growers underwritten by CGU Insurance or Wesfarmers Federation Insurance.

The Orchard Crop Insurance policy features a choice of insured risks including hail, frost or fire cover; loss of yield options for fruit bearing trees, optional increased costs, flexible excesses and transit cover.

The cotton, forestry and viticulture crop insurance policies also feature flexible coverage options to suit the grower’s requirements.

AWB - Landmark Group General Manager - Financial Services, Michael Thomas, said the company was focussed on meeting customers’ needs by assisting with the provision of tailored and competitive insurance packages.

He said the insurance products were another ‘tool in the box’ for Landmark customers, delivering on its promise of being a complete provider for all agricultural requirements.

“From farm insurance and business insurance to home and contents insurance, there is now something for everyone in our product range. Importantly, these are backed by professional staff who understand customer’s insurance requirements, and this allows Landmark to match insurance for rural and regional needs,” said Mr Thomas.

“We are very happy we can assist customers with the provision of competitive and flexible insurance quotes for orchard crops, with cotton, forestry and viticulture crops to follow shortly.

With such a comprehensive range we are certain these products will stand up very well in the marketplace,” said Mr Thomas.

The new Agricola products will be supported by a marketing campaign in rural and regional areas highlighting the increased options and flexibility they will offer.

“We want to give our customers total confidence in their insurance and introducing a range of features and choices on these policies will allow this,” said Mr Thomas.
