Insurance companies protect people from financial catastrophe by spreading the risk of financially crippling events over a large number of people. In doing this, insurance companies often sell specific types of insurance to specific demographic groups based on such things as occupation, education, group affiliations, and geographic location. Rural insurance can be insurance of any type that companies market specifically to people and organizations located in rural areas or with certain lifestyles, and practices. Decisions regarding insurance depend crucially on the extent to which individuals are willing to bear risk. Farmer’s decision of whether or not to participate insurance is likely to be influenced by comparison of expected net gain (or loss) with or without insurance. The rural dwellers have favourable attitude towards insurance, hence aware and willing to take Nigeria Agriculture Insurance Corporation [NAIC]. Therefore there is evidence for insurance penetration in the rural areas. The Nigerian Agricultural Insurance Corporation is the sole provider of Agricultural insurance in Nigeria. It is recommended that the Act establishing the Corporation be reviewed, to allow the participation of private sector companies in agricultural insurance. This will improve efficiency and spur healthy competition in the sector. Further, young and well educated people should be encouraged to improve their willingness to take insurance, and provision of insurance services at affordable rate.

For a peer-reviewed journal, the publication of articles plays an essential role in the development of a coherent network of knowledge. It is, therefore, essential that all publishers, editors, authors, and reviewers, in the process of publishing the journals, conduct themselves in accordance with the highest level of professional ethics and standards. The publisher is dedicated to supporting the vast efforts of the editors, the academic contributions of authors, and the respected volunteer work undertaken by reviewers. The publisher is also responsible for ensuring that the publication system works smoothly, and that ethical guidelines are applied to assist the editor, author, and reviewer in performing their ethical duties.
The editor has the following responsibilities:
1.The editor should acknowledge receipt of submitted manuscripts within two working days of receipt and ensure an efficient, fair, and timely review process.
2.The editor should ensure that submitted manuscripts are processed in a confidential manner, and that no content of the manuscripts will be disclosed to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
3.The editor should recuse himself or herself from processing manuscripts if he or she has any conflict of interest with any of the authors or institutions related to the manuscripts.
4.The editor should not disclose the names and other details of the reviewers to a third party without the permission of the reviewers.
5.The editor has the right to make the final decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript with reference to the significance, originality, and clarity of the manuscript and its relevance to the journal.

7.The editor should not use for his or her own research any part of any data or work reported in submitted and as yet unpublished articles.
