Descripción
Index-based insurance is a very efficient strategy for protecting farmers' incomes, when a climatic catastrophic event occurs. The extreme climatic events that affect farmers more frequently are drought and floods, which in turn are associated with large economic. Index-based insurance does not need in situ verification of the insured event, with the occurrence being determined by an index that is much correlated with the farmer's losses. For this study, we rely in previous studies, which helped determine agro-ecological homogenous zones (AHZ) with similar climatic and soil conditions through principal components analysis. In the rice crop study area, in Babahoyo canton-Ecuador, two main AHZ were delimited, named f7 and f15. The differences among these two AHZs, both over bare soil and over rice crop, were statistically significant using soil reflectance and NDVI respectively. The most important soil differences between zones f7 and f15 are slope, texture, and effective depth; and related with climate is precipitation.
