As noted by the head of the Center of agricultural insurance "Rosgosstrakh" Vadim Konstantinovich, our leadership has provided individual clients, insuring agricultural animals in personal farmsteads. This is historic for "Rosgosstrakh" insurance services: the company offers villagers a special program "the Cow" which provides payment in the event of death or forced slaughter of animals because of illness, accident, fire, natural disaster. The program also covered the risk of loss of the animal as a result of illegal actions of third parties (theft). Program demand: at the end of 5 months the number of such contracts in "Rosgosstrakh" has exceeded 14 thousand.
However, among clients of the company there are many large agricultural holdings: "Rosgosstrakh" part of the national Union of agricultural insurers, the membership of which gives the company the right to conclude insurance contracts with state support. For five months of this year accrued premium on contracts with state support amounted to in "Rosgosstrakh" almost 295 million rubles, which is 2.3 times more than in the same period last year. Of these, 17.8 million rubles — this is the premium livestock and 277 million roubles of the award in crop production. Insured with state in "Rosgosstrakh" the area of crops of agricultural crops for the specified period is more than 239 million hectares, which is 2.6 times more than in the same period last year.
"A large agricultural company, almost all at 100% transfer to the insurance of farm animals. The yield of crops as a hedge of large and medium-sized and small farms, — says Vadim Konstantinovich. In 2019 in the agricultural insurance there have been significant positive changes, particularly a change in the law on agricultural insurance with state support, that in recent years has boosted demand for agricultural insurance. However, the percentage of insured acreage is still small. The market Outlook will largely depend on the further improvement of the system of agricultural insurance in Russia, support this direction of the state, increase in subsidy position and activity of regional authorities. As well as attracting farmers to the insurance conduct with them explanatory work directed on increase of motivation to insurance risk. Because agriculture and in particular crop — is a high-risk industry, which depends on weather conditions. In turn, the "Rosgosstrakh" and further plans to increase its market share in agricultural insurance".
