The late February, frost hit various areas of Metaponto (Basilicata). Strawberry flowers under polytunnels weren't damaged that much, so production won't be affected. As for stone fruit, however, flowers that had already blossomed were hit rather hard, while it is still early to make an assessment for the late varieties.
Statistical information on agricultural insurance in Ukraine is basically absent in mass media (Internet, newspapers). We also could not find this information on agricultural insurance in other CIS countries. We propose to consider sample statistical information on crop insurance in Italy. At the present time the crop insurance program is subsidized by Italian government and ag insurance is offered by four insurance consortiums. We would like to point out the Italian insurers mostly offer single and selected perils insurance products. Multi-peril (MPCI) was introduced only several years ago and the data display very modest achievements of MPCI program.
