Initially used to cover hail threats, Agriculture insurance is more than 100 years old. Today, innovative tools and new techniques based on satellites technology are available to improve, develop and expand this domain. The aim of this Technical Newsletter, published over two volumes, is to provide an understanding of the different types of satellites that can be used for agriculture insurance, and how they can be used. In the second volume we will focus on satellite imagery technology and assess the key factors to be taken into account in the agricultural and insurance decisionmaking process.
