TAGA, QBE NA Launch Herbicide/Pesticide Insurance Program in Texas

April 10, 2017

Tejas American General Agency (TAGA), a Texas based MGA and wholesale brokerage has launched a new herbicide/pesticide program in Texas, underwritten through QBE North America, an operating division of global insurer QBE Insurance Group Limited.

The herbicide/pesticide program allows applicators of herbicides and pesticides to include general liability and property coverage for spray rigs on one policy. This program will be run under the guidance of Anita Herzog, TAGA partner and manager of TAGA’s Commercial Agriculture Division, who is already accepting applications from producers.

Herzog said the aim of the program “is to serve a section of the market that has historically been difficult to place and give our agents a standard market option with growth opportunities.”

TAGA was formed in 1997 as a managing general agency and surplus lines agent providing commercial and personal insurance products to independent agents and is currently licensed in 22 states, mostly in the Southwest and Southeast. TAGA is located in the Austin area, in Cedar Park, Texas.

QBE North America is part of QBE Insurance Group Limited, one of the largest insurers and reinsurers worldwide. Headquartered in Sydney, Australia, QBE operates out of 37 countries around the globe, with a presence in every key insurance market. The North America division, headquartered in New York, conducts business through its property and casualty insurance subsidiaries.
