    1 Million coverage includes equipment coverage and pesticides. Less than $400 per year
    through Erie Insurance. Also have a second policy from Farm Bureau I need to cancel. They would not cover pesticides and it is $300/year.

    It is based on either employees or payroll. The more that you have, the higher the cost of the insurance. One guy should get $1,000,000 for about $350 -$450 per year and the equipment will be a little bit more. If you are running five employees full time, it will be a lot more.
