Climate changes leads to drastic changes in the environment. Agriculture faces increasing weather related risks such as droughts. Modern insurance policies can help avert the worst consequences. Those policies are powered by new technology. They are informed by latest scientific insights. They leverage big data to flexibly estimate individual risks.
We have a decade long record of hydrologic modelling. Our expertise opens up more precise ways to estimate the plant available water at the root zone than currently used in the insurance sector. We initiated the Simucrop project to explore avenues how we can provide added value to clients and partners.
