Water policy will have an effect on corn acres in the Panhandle where corn crop is irrigated. With the efforts of the Corn Producers Association of Texas (CPAT), irrigated producers expect a 9 percent and 10 percent decrease in their crop insurance premiums in 2011 which balances insurance costs for producers in Texas.
