Gephart, W. , Principles of Insurance (Macmillan, New York, 1915), p. 31. 22 Agricultural Insurance insurance, the insured substitutes a small defined periodical expenditure for a larger unknown and sporadic loss. All insurance is in principle characterized by the two fundamental features described above, namely, combination of risks and the distribution of a loss among the many; but in practice there is often a difference in the types of insurance due to the emphasis put upon the one or the other.

The reduction of risks affords a possibility of scaling down the probabilityuncertainty ratio, so much so that even the need for insurance may very well be reduced. The uncertainty of yield that follows from uncertain conditions of rainfall, for instance, can be eliminated to a considerable extent through well-devised systems of drainage, storage and irrigation. The fortuitousness of agricultural risks may arise from diverse natural factors as well as from human failings as, for example, mishandling of fire or of farm machines.
