Economic Analysis of Crop Insurance Alternatives Under Surface Water Curtailment Uncertainty


  • Falconer, Lawrence L.
  • Richardson, James W.


This paper reports SERF analysis to help rice landlords in the Upper Coastal Bend of Texas evaluate alternative crop insurance combinations of yield loss and prevented planting coverage levels given uncertainty related to surface irrigation water curtailment. For baseline and high curtailment probability scenarios, prevented planting buy up is preferred.
