    I am starting into the spray business this spring and I am looking for a
    company that will write this type of insurance. I am in Missouri so if anyone could help I would appreciate.

    Check to see if scotsdale is in your state. We have been pleased with them.

    Also check into Columbia insurance. With any type of insurance you will just have to find an agent and see what they have to offer. Both Scotsdale and Columbia have provisions for the pesticide part. Often it's hard to convey that's what you have to have to an agent... Standard Liability type insurance isn't enough.

    Your Insurance company for your business won't add that on to your policy? If not seems kind of strange they would'nt, the amount of claims filed is nothing.

    I just signed on with Erie for 1,000,000 liabilty and my rider says specifically that fert and pesticde is included. It is their 5 star contractor policy. Had to say that for the state to issue my license.
