    In diesem Beitrag wird für einen regional typischen maiserzeugenden Durchschnittsbetrieb in der Nordchinesischen Tiefebene die Wirkung eines Wetterderivats in Form einer Niederschlagsoption analysiert. Auf einen Durchschnittsbetrieb wird fokussiert, weil eine Betrachtung von wenigen, spezifischen realen Betrieben aufgrund der überwiegend kleinstrukturierten Landwirtschaft in China und der sehr heterogenen Betriebsstrukturen wenig aussagekräftig wäre. Es zeigt sich, dass verschiedene Niederschlagsoptionen, die sich jeweils auf das Wetter an unterschiedlichen Wetterstationen im Unter-suchungsgebiet beziehen, durchaus zu einer Stabilisierung des landwirtschaftlichen Einkommens auf dem Durchschnittsbetrieb beitragen können.
