The article proves that due to the complexity of agricultural business, risks in agriculture are as important to the society as to the individual farmers. An unexpected drought can have catastrophic effects on the farms output which in turn will reduce the overall welfare of the society. Besides the occurrence of potential risks, the management of these risks is also a concern for the society. In this paper we discuss the common risk management techniques with special emphasis on insurance mechanisms. Past and current examples of agricultural insurance schemes are analyzed. The paper also offers a detailed analysis of trends and possible variations of existing insurance coverage systems in Europe.

Şahin, Gizem; Büyükcivelek, Ahmet Burak; Urban Design in City and Regional Planning Department (2022-5-06)
The agricultural sector has maintained its vital importance as it meets the food need of the population in every period of human history. Also, the developments in agricultural production in world history allow to access to the times for focusing on technological developments. Correctly implemented and integrated technological advancement into business processes of agricultural production help agricultural producers to sustain their agricultural activities, especially in rural areas which are disadvantaged ...
Development, implementation and evaluation of index-based insurance schemes for optimal risk management in Agriculture (AGINSURANCE)
Gülseven, Osman(2013-9-30)
It is well-known that agriculture is a risky business. In addition to the catastrophic events, farmers face double-risk by involving in production, namely output and price risks. Naturally, traditional insurance systems are developed to cover these risks: yield insurance covers the output risk and price insurance covers fluctuations in prices. Currently, as the European Union commission reports suggest, European countries offer mostly classical insurance systems. However, none of these systems offer enough ...

This study estimates the risk contributions of individual European countries regarding the indemnity payments in agricultural insurance. We model the total risk exposure as an insurance portfolio where each country is unique in terms of its risk characteristics. The data has been collected from the recent surveys conducted by the European Commission and the World Bank. Farm Accountancy Data Network is used as well. 22 out of 26 member states are included in the study. The results suggest that the Euro-Medit...
Recent advances in potato genomics, transcriptomics, and transgenics under drought and heat stresses: A review
Aksoy, Emre; Demirel, Ufuk; Öztürk, Zahide Neslihan; Çalişkan, Sevgi; Çalişkan, Mehmet Emin (2015-01-01)
Sustainable potato production practices are crucial for food security and social sustainability in the future since potato is a highly nutritious food and it is considered as one of the most promising crops to reduce human hunger and poverty in the world due to its high yield potential. However, being a temperate crop, potato is exposed to various environmental stresses, including extended periods of drought and heat. The majority of potato genomics, transcriptomics, and transgenics studies concentrate on t...
Stochastic surplus processes with VaR AND CVaR simulations in actuarial applications
Şimşek, Meral; Uğur, Ömür; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Department of Actuarial Sciences (2016)
The theory of ruin is a substantial study for those who are interested in financial survival probability based on the patterns imposed by the surplus process, which determines the insurer’s capital balance at a given time. In other words, fluctuations in aggregate claims as well as premiums in such processes can be secured by a certain capital. In this study, we simulate various surplus processes under different claim sizedistribution assumptions and extend the analyses by adding perturbation of a Brownian mo...
