Company Introduction

The Risk Assurance Programs Company(RAPCO) was formed as a company in 2002 to address bussiness practices in agriculture. In the same year RAPCO began pilot work, which consisted of opening farm records to better understand profitability at the farm gate. In the intial program, RAPCO found that the largest issues that were affecting farm profitability were machinery and land cost. By planting field peas early in the growing season, farmers can plant two crops from one piece of land and better utilize the equipment that they currently have. This addressess the issue of land and machinery cost.

In 2002, the new US Farm Bill included pulse crops. Rapco was already testing Field Peas. In the growing seasons since, field peas have been produced by farmers in 47 counties in Illinois and expanded into 4 surrounding states. In 2003 and 2004 the field peas were successfully exported to Cuba.
