RI (Rainfall Index):
The Rainfall Index (RI) plan of insurance is a risk management tool to insure against a decline in an index value that is based on the long-term historical average precipitation for an approximate 12×12 mile grid over specific two-month time intervals.
A minimum of two index intervals must be selected for acreage insured under the RI plan. The insured selects which index intervals to cover and the amount of coverage. Selection of index intervals is critical to the effectiveness of the RI plan as a risk management tool. Coverage is based on indexes for the grid, not the producer’s actual rainfall.
