RATE-MAKING FOR FARM-LEVEL CROP INSURANCE

Michael Reed () and Jerry R. Skees

No 278643, 1985 Annual Meeting, August 4-7, Ames, Iowa from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: This research identifies two problems in the new Federal Crop Insurance that may cause adverse selection: 1) the relationship between rate-making and expected yields for individual farmers, and 2) the bias introduced in coverage protection when trends are not used to establish ••• expected yields. A theoretical investigation using the normality assumption demonstrates the potential severity of these problems and empirical results from farm-level data lend further support.
