"One of the main effects of TARSİM is seen in the agricultural sector as moving from crisis management to the risk management," stated Yusuf SATOGLU, General Manager, TARSIM - Agricultural Insurance Pool, Turkey for XPRIMM.

After 10 years of existence, TARSIM may be proud of putting in place a system which allows farmers of being "compensated fast and accurately against the natural disasters."

Among others, "farmers started to apply modern agricultural techniques during their productions because of the insurance requirements. For example, hail nets for orchards and modern greenhouses, etc.". According Mr. SATOGLU, "since the beginning of the system until the end of 2015, 5.9 million policies were issued for all agricultural insurances, USD 1.7 Billion in premiums were produced and in return over USD 1.1 billion in indemnities were paid. The coverage widens each year, in the context in which the needs and expectations of producers and various applications are integrated into the system. As of this moment TARSIM offers a wide range of services to producers with 7 different agricultural insurance lines (crop insurance, cattle insurance, sheep & goat insurance, greenhouse insurance, poultry insurance, aquaculture insurance and bee hives insurance). In this sense, TARSIM has extremely positive effects on the agricultural industry."

To celebrate its 10 years if successful activity, TARSIM will organize in Istanbul, on June 2-3, 2016 The International Agricultural Insurance Symposium, under the generic title "Keeping pur traditions alive for the future".

About 500 participants from the institutions and organizations located in dozens of countries are expected to attend the event. The central theme of the symposium is cooperation, solidarity and sharing. For this reason, rug patterns which are used to share feelings in almost every part of Anatolia and which symbolize labour are used as a concept. Figures located on the rugs, such as cleat, women, star and eye represents fertility, productivity, solidarity and other core values of both the farmers and TARSİM.
