The study examined the emerging trends and patterns of agricultural risk and insurance in Bundelkhand region of UP at district and farm levels. The result indicated that the level of agricultural risk was exceptionally high, with high disparities among the districts. The farm-level analysis indicated the crop insurance might be a vital tool to mitigate agricultural risk. It was also suggested that there was a need to focus on specific cropping pattern, improved irrigation services, provide rural infrastructure, expansion of financial services along with effective crop insurance scheme to mitigate the agricultural risk and enhance the farmer's income.
