Crop Diversification to Reduce Exposure to Climatic Changes: Associated Risks and Mitigation Strategies

Crop Diversification to Reduce Exposure to Climatic Changes: Associated Risks and Mitigation Strategies

Lack of well-developed supply chain systems for alternative crops expose farmers to considerable risk, making it difficult for them to move away from the paddy/wheat crop rotation cycle. Public policy interventions and supply chain innovations such as targeted insurance products, pooling practices, investments in skill development, entrepreneurial models for service provision, market-side initiatives and a better understanding of supply chain risks are needed to enable farmers to adopt crop diversification.
