For example: complete loss of crops of wheat is 100 hectares, this area is insured according to the standard costs: 3457 tenge per hectare. 100 * 3457 = 345 700 tenge - is the amount of insurance payment to the insured by the insurance company.

In partial loss of crop on an area of ​​100 hectare payment is: Products harvested from an area of ​​100 hectares are 3 tons, cost of 1 ton is 40,000 tenge, 3 * 40000/100 = 1 200 tenge - income from 1 hectare . The amount of loss equals (3457-1200) * 100 = 225 700 tenge. This amount of 225700 is - the amount of insurance payments in partial loss of crops.

It Must be Remembered!
