China Agricultural Model
China mainland has the largest livestock and forestry insurance portfolio in the world and also boasts the second-largest market for agriculture insurance after the U.S. As the market continues to develop and evolve, deeper understanding has never been more important. The Moody's RMS® China Agricultural Model can help close the insurance coverage gap and accurately measure crop, livestock, and forestry risks at a country level consistent with the insurance coverage in China mainland.
India Agricultural Model
India is the largest market for weather and yield index-based agriculture insurance schemes. The agricultural land in India relies on rainfall for irrigation. Being rain-fed, the area is also at increased likelihood of monsoon rainfalls. If not measured accurately, this poses a huge challenge for insurers and reinsurers. The Moody's RMS® India Agricultural Model covers weather (WBCIS) and yield (mNAIS, currently operated within PMFBY scheme) index-based insurance contracts at the district level.
Brazil Agricultural Model
Brazil is the fourth largest agricultural producing country in the world whose agricultural insurance premiums have rapidly grown to over $1 billion since the introduction of the rural insurance premium subsidy program in 2006. The Moody’s RMS Brazil Agricultural Model supports the modeling of both multi-peril crop insurance (MPCI) and revenue insurance for the eight top premium crops in the country to assist (re)insurers in effectively underwriting and managing this risk.

What were the main factors driving these losses, how often can we expect such conditions, and what might we expect in forthcoming years? Weather...
