3. Farm Insurance scheme against natural calamities launched in 18 districts –
Insurance to cover damage/losses to coconut palm, nut caused by natural calamities
Sum insured for a tree of 4 to 15 years is
Rs. 600; for 16 to 60 years: Rs. 1,150
Bangalore: Agriculture Insurance Company (AIC), a Central Government undertaking, has launched a new farm insurance scheme for coconut growers in 18 districts of the State from this year (2010-11).
It will provide insurance to coconut growers against natural calamities.
The scheme will be implemented in Bangalore Urban, Bangalore Rural, Chitradurga, Shimoga, Tumkur, Davangere, Mysore, Chikmagalur, Dakshina Kannada, Hassan, Mandya, Chamarajanagar, Udupi, Uttara Kannada, Dharwad, Ramangaram, Chickballapur and Kolar, officials of AIC, Regional Office, Bangalore, told The Hindu on Wednesday.

Pilot scheme
Following the successful implementation of a pilot scheme in Tiptur in Tumkur district last year, the AIC, in collaboration with Coconut Development Board (CDB) and the State Government, will launch the scheme in the districts. AIC covered 27,000 trees under the pilot project in Tiptur, which is famous for its copra.
Under the scheme, a grower and the Horticulture Department of the State will contribute 25 per cent each of the premium, while the CDB will take on the remaining 50 per cent. A sum insured for a tree aged between 4 and 15 is Rs. 600 and Rs. 1,150 for those aged between 16 and 60.
Karnataka ranked second after Kerala in terms of area under coconut plantation. According to the CDB, coconut trees are spread over 4.19 lakh hectares in Karnataka against 7.87 lakh hectares in Kerala.
Tamil Nadu ranks third with plantations on over 3.89 lakh hectares.
The State produces 2,176 million tones of nuts annually and productivity per hectare is 5,193 nuts.

Under the insurance scheme, the AIC has set a target to cover 19,000 hectares of coconut plantations in 18 districts this year.
It will target 2,500 hectares each in Tumkur and Dakshina Kannada, 1,000 hectares each in Chitradurga, Mysore, Udupi, Uttara Kannada, and 1,500 hectares each in Davangere, Chikmagalur, Chamarajanagar and Mandya districts. It would cover a few hundred hectares in rest of the districts, officials said.
The coconut tree is vulnerable to vagaries of weather such as cyclone winds, floods, inundation, landslide, besides pests and diseases. The insurance would cover damage/losses to coconut palm or nut yield arising out of non-preventable natural factors. The insurance coverage and claim assessment would be on individual tree basis, officials said.
Growers have been losing yield on account of various diseases such as black caterpillar, root wilt, grey leaf blight causing grave concern among the coconut growers in the State.
Diseases results in low yield in affected trees of Hassan, Tumkur and the coastal districts.
