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.

Australia - Exotic strain of wheat disease confirmed

Scientists have discovered an exotic strain of a wheat disease in Australia that, when serious enough, can reduce yields by more than 20 per cent. The disease 'leaf rust' is a well-known foe to Australian grain producers, who have learned the best way to avoid it is to grow resistant wheat varieties. But the new strain, sourced from overseas, means many varieties will lose their resistant status. Testing by the University of Sydney revealed the exotic strain was present throughout the south east of South Australia, on the Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula and in the Adelaide Plains.
U.S. farmers switching corn for wheat

With most grain crops mired in bear markets, Oklahoma farmer figures his only chance to break even is to expand supplies of wheat that already are in surplus. He’s not alone. U.S. growers, the largest exporters, will seed the most winter wheat since 2007. While wheat wasn’t spared from price slumps, growing conditions have improved in the Great Plains after a drought led to a 2014 harvest that was smallest in eight years, and government crop-insurance programs are providing wheat with a better floor for revenue than other crops.
USDA To Spend $4 Million On Improving Honeybee Health In 5 States

Midwestern farmers and ranchers are getting $4 million in federal help to improve the health of honeybees. The aid through USDA's' Environmental Quality Incentives Program would help producers in the Dakotas, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan implement conservation practices, such as seeding alfalfa or clover crops on pasture land. Bees play an important role in food production, pollinating an estimated $15 billion worth of crops. Their numbers have been declining at a sharp rate in recent years due in part to colony collapse disorder, blamed on a number of factors including mites, pesticides and habitat loss.
USA - The end of tobacco subsidies

After 76 years, tobacco farmers are no longer going to receive federal payments to maintain their financial stability. The last federal subsidies to tobacco farmers will go out this month. While the federal movement has subsidized tobacco farmers since 1938, for the last 10 years it has been making payments out of a 10-year $10 billion federal program to wean the nation’s 10,000 tobacco farmers off of subsidies. That program ends at the end of October.
India - Farmers staring at one of the worst crop failures

Though untimely, delayed, erratic, insufficient or excess rains have been ruining crops in the region for the last few years, farmers claim this year will see the worst crop failures in recent times. All three major Vidarbha crops, cotton, soyabean and orange, have suffered huge losses due to the truant rains. Generally, at least one crop survives nature's vagaries so farmers get some income. But this year farm activists are claiming that farmers are doomed. To compound the woes, crops are not getting the due price.
Russia - Wheat threatened by lack of rain

Dry weather has damaged the early growth of winter wheat in Russia’s key growing areas, threatening to push up food prices not only domestically but also in key export markets such as Egypt, Iran and Morocco. The dry conditions started in September, when the winter wheat was planted, and caused the quality of the crop to deteriorate. Agricultural forecaster SovEcon, based in Moscow, projects Russia could produce less than 50 million metric tons of wheat in the 2015-16 crop year. In the prior season, Russia produced 59 million tons.

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
