    It will be interesting to see if it is sold as insurance or as a derivative. If it is sold as it is in the USA it is unlikely to pass the test as an insurance product as there is no proof of loss requirement?

    I CAN NOT see it working long term because farmers in drought / frost prone areas will select the cover, those not in these ares will not and therefore the premium pool will be insufficient to support the losses. This is why the government will not and should not get involved
