Description: 

The agriculture sector faces various risks, such as climate change and rising prices of materials for production. Farmers deal with these risks using different methods, such as mixed cropping and staggered sowing. Agricultural insurance and government support can help, but a holistic agriculture risk management approach is recommended to ensure risks are reduced and farmer incomes are increased.
