Abstract Ukraine occupies a leading position in the world in the production and export of agricultural products. At the present stage of development of the agricultural sector, the most important task is its further development, because the country has significant potential to increase and improve the quality of production. Agricultural production is one of the important, specific and at the same time the most risky areas of human activity. Specific features of the agricultural market: high cost of facilities due to the large area of land, increased risk of production, cumulative losses due to natural disasters and progressive climate change, he duration of the production cycle, affects the profitability of farmers, necessitate the use of one of the most important tools for minimizing risks — insurance and, if necessary, further diversification of risks through reinsurance. The article considers the main indicators of agricultural insurance: in terms of insurance companies, in terms of regions, in terms of agricultural crops. The amount of insurance payments in terms of insurance companies and agricultural crops is analyzed. Trends in animal insurance are presented. The agricultural insurance market in Ukraine is developing slowly, but in recent years still shows a positive upward trend. For a country with a huge potential of the agricultural sector of the economy, the saturation of the agricultural insurance market with insurance services and the actual volume of agricultural risk insurance, undoubtedly, are insufficient. Now agricultural insurance in Ukraine is actively developing. However, despite the positive dynamics, the current state of agricultural insurance in Ukraine does not meet its main task - to manage risks in the agricultural sector to ensure its stable operation and sustainable development of the agricultural sector of the economy. The current system of agrarian risk insurance in Ukraine, including the provision of state support to the agricultural sector, requires improvement and should be aimed at ensuring adequate protection of the interests of agricultural producers and food security, stabilizing production and income in the agricultural sector and encouraging the best technology agricultural production.
