A customizable insurance against the risk of heatwaves.
Parametric insurance: a tailored solution to help farmers offset the financial risk that comes with a heatwaves during the crops’ bloom.
Developing the optimal coverage by adapting to specific risks
Abnormal heat conditions during the flowering of crops can have a strong negative impact on yields. To prevent a drop in revenues or to integrate additional irrigation costs, Meteo Protect offers insurance that can adapt to the specificities of each producer.
For example, above 36 °C, corn fertility rate begins to decline. If an episode of extreme heat lasts for too long, even irrigated crops can be impacted.

- The compensation per critical day (in euros)
- The indemnity limit (in euros)
