Sonit Singla

Journal of Risk Finance, 2012, vol. 13, issue 3, 199-214

Abstract: Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to suggest an integrated risk management service for agriculture, by identifying different risk management practices that may be offered in conjunction with crop insurance, to address the various problems and challenges being faced by farmers and by insurance companies. Design/methodology/approach - The research is based on an inductive approach of developing theory from case studies using within-case and cross-case analysis. However, apart from exploring different elements from case studies, some of the existing concepts have been reviewed from the literature for their application in agricultural risk management. Findings - An integrated framework for risk management in agriculture has been developed by inductively exploring the various elements that may be successfully interlinked with the crop insurance to tackle the various agricultural risks more efficiently and effectively. Practical implications - This paper can act as a basis for new product development in agricultural risk management through the use of this integrated approach of risk management and the different elements that have been identified to improve the effectiveness of crop insurance. Originality/value - This paper fulfils the identified need to develop a framework for an integrated risk management in agriculture.
