Considering the important place of the agriculture and the presence of natural risks to hedge; agricultural insurance has been a subject of interest for a long time in Turkey. Recently, a new agricultural scheme involving some managerial and legal changes has been launched. In this framework, evolving technologies used in finance and insurance sector have also been started to be implemented for agricultural insurance operations. Another specific point of this new scheme is the inclusion of a new insurance flow network accompanied by an intense research and development (R&D) to be made especially for system improvement. In this stage, when the number of potential customers to be served has been taken into account; one of the areas for improvement can be database systems. The goal of the paper is to briefly present the new agricultural insurance scheme and network by providing an extension for the database management. The study is composed of five parts. In the first part, the agricultural insurance concept has been analyzed in a global point of view. Following the literature review, brief history and recent legislation concerning the agricultural insurance scheme in Turkey has been mentioned in the third part and the new established network in connection with this scheme has been given in the fourth part of the study. In the fifth part, an implementation model using Extract Transform Load (ETL) flow for system network amelioration has been provided.
