CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
    Agricultural insurance as an alterative for risk management started as crop insurance in Europe more than one hundred years ago and then spread to the united state of America at the beginning of the 20th century. It has since then been embraced by a lot of the world like Ganada, Mauritius, Zimbabure, Philippines, Iran, Zambia and Nigeria with varying degrees of success and failures in agriculture production.
    In Nigeria there has been growing need since, 1976 to evolve a worthwhile and more permanent natural approach to risk management in agricultural and this has continued to attract the attention of the  various government. To this effect, the Nigeria. Agricultural insurance corporation was established by the federal government of Nigeria and funded largely by her with the participation of state government and the organized private sector. Nigeria agricultural insurance corporation stated as a company but became a corporation in 1993 by the virtue of decree 37 of 1993.

Two-thirds of the worlds  Agricultural  value added is estimated to be created in developing countries (World Bank 2008).
    Agriculture is the art and service of crop and invest rick production. In  its broadcast sense agricultural comprises the entire range of technology or technologies associated with the production o f useful products from plants and animals, including soil cultivation, crop and  livestock  management, and the activities of processing and marketing.
