Revenue Insurance: Covering Yield and Price Risks. Basic Requirements from an Insurance perspective

Managing price risk with crop revenue insurance has attracted much attention in recent years, with only two successful schemes (USA and Canada) indicating the factors most critical for success: ample regional yield-price information, effective ways of price discovery and – most importantly – extensive public support, both for regulation and finances.

USA - Newly passed Farm Bill doesn`t offer much to Valley farmers

A new provision to the farm bill offers growers direct relief from severe weather such as drought. But the program doesn't have much to offer to Valley farmers. The U.S Department of Food and Agriculture widened a safety net for federally insured crops hit hard by severe weather. "Actual production history" provision allows farmers to throw out "bad years" when determining yields for crop insurance. If you have a natural disaster including impacts of such things as drought and you have production that is less than 50% of your 10-year average you can exclude it.
Czech Republic - Wild boars cause millions of crowns in damage in agriculture sector

Uprooted earth, ruined fields, leftover bits of corn, beetroot and wheat gobbled up: each year, wild boars in the Czech Republic cause extensive damage. Legally, game keeping associations are responsible for the regulation of population levels; in the case of wild boar, many argue, new steps need to be taken. Last year, 185,000 specimens were hunted, yet damage remains in the millions of crowns. Almost 200,000 boars hunted each year seems almost astronomical, estimated as being up to 60 percent of the overall boar population; yet some in the agriculture as well as game keeping sectors say is probably not enough, given the damage registered.
Australia - Wild weather hits crop quality

The Australian crop is likely to suffer further downgrades in terms of quantity and quality following adverse weather in the past fortnight. Heavy rain and hail over the southern Western Australian Wheatbelt wreaked havoc earlier in the week, with up to 150 millimetres dumped in some areas. There will be some production loss in the form of hail damage in a belt through the south central Wheatbelt, but the major issue is yet to fully play out, in terms of downgrading in standing crop.
USA - New crop insurance product offers whole farm protection

A new crop insurance product recently unveiled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will allow farmers to insure all of their crops, and even livestock, in a single policy rather than through individual commodity policies. This new approach will allow crop growers, organic farmers, and growers with a diversity of commodities to purchase crop insurance as part of a whole farm revenue protection policy.This new policy provides the growers of specialty and organic crops and those with a diversity of crops with the option of insuring those crops in one policy package.
India - No need to declare hailstorm as calamity for crop insurance: MP govt

The deadlock on payment of insurance claims to farmers for the damage to rabi crops by hailstorm and untimely rains seems to be in the offing, with the state government telling the high court that it does not specifically require to declare hailstorm as a natural/localised calamity for insurance claims to mature. The government reply says that according to the policy announced by the state government in November 2013 on basis of the guidelines issued by the Central government, the compensation or insurance claim is to be paid by undertaking general crop estimation survey on basis of threshold yield and actual yield.
Argentina - Apricot and plum production declined because of a poor flowering

Due to various climatic factors, the fruit sector in the province of San Juan hasn't had good harvests, its yields have not been what was expected, and the sector's boom at the start of the third millennium, for which there were high expectations in the province, hasn't happened. Winter had been quite generous with its chill hours, which are essential to promote good flowering, but that the spring had surprised farmers with a rather long, uneven flowering in which there had been a small overlap between pollinators and pollinated flowers. Apricot variety has been presented the most problems setting, so they had lost around 70%.

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
