USA - Rains damage crops statewide; Northern Indiana hit the hardest

Southern Indiana farms fared better than their northern counterparts under June’s heavy rain and flooding that has reduced the state corn and soybean crop by about $300 million, according to an estimate given by a state agriculture expert last week. Projected harvests for corn and soybeans have dropped about 5 percent, Purdue University agricultural economist said. The damage sustained could increase with more wet weather.
Spain - Climatic instability affected close to 695,000 hectares 2015

At the end of the first half of the year, variability and instability are the features that can better define the weather conditions which Spanish agricultural products have been subjected to. Since January, a number of weather phenomena have taken place, damaging a total of 694,837.89 hectares of insured crops, as reported by the Spanish Association of Combined Agricultural Insurance Providers (Agroseguro). The year started with intense wind storms that affected more than 24,300 insured hectares.
India - Protecting farmers against weather risk

Agricultural insurance continues to be a divisive topic in India and a fresh debate is raging between proponents of establishing an agriculture risk fund to cover weather-related crop damage and those who believe the task should be tackled by a participatory insurance model, in which farmers pay part of the premium. As clients, they would ‘own’ the cover, and thus demand fast settlement of claims. In many countries, there is a real possibility of a ‘political moral hazard’, where politicians are tempted to appease farmers, or other interest groups , by offering inflated compensation.
India - Rain plays havoc for Vannamei growers

Repeated spells of rainfall recorded across the coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh recently have changed the chemical parameters of the water in the fishponds under Vannamei shrimp cultivation, leading to mass death of shrimp. Ironically, harvesting of the shrimp was largely to begin by early July across the coastal belt, particularly in Krishna, East and West Godavari and Nellore districts. Delay in harvesting will cause of complete death of shrimps as changed parameters in the water will not suitable for their survival
USA - Iowa crops and weather report - June 2, 2015

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture commented on the Iowa Crops and Weather report released by the USDA National Agricultural Statistical Service. The strong storms and heavy rains that rolled through Iowa last week have stressed crops, flooded some fields and limited farmers’ ability to get needed work done. Spraying weeds, side-dressing fertilizer, making hay and other activities were all slowed by the wet weather. Some farmers in Southwest and South Central Iowa may be forced to take prevented-planting coverage on some fields they will not be able to plant before July 1.
England - Berries, cherries are casualties of June rain

Across the Windsor region, persistent rains have taken their toll on farmers' crops. Binghamton experienced its second-wettest June ever this year, with 9.92 inches of rain falling, according to the National Weather Service. Around 7 inches of rain fell in the City of Ithaca this June — even more in surrounding areas — drowning out soft-skinned, vulnerable crops in fields from Apalachin to Watkins Glen. The average June rainfall in Ithaca is 3.98 inches, according to U.S. Climate Data.

Italy - Hail on melons and secondary deseases: risk event

"After yet another hailstorm in the Mantua area, and the serious downy mildew problems, we have lost over 200 hectares of melons, i.e. almost the entire July and August production," explains Ettore Cagna, chairman of Don Camillo. "Such a disaster means it will be very difficult for us to comply with the collection schedule arranged with our clients." "Of course we had planned our production at the beginning of the season according to different schedules and areas, but we lost practically everything this year!" "We are indeed preparing an emergency programme to try and reduce any inconvenience for our clients though," concludes Mr. Cagna. Source - FreshPLaza
