Explanation:

Under the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY), there is a premium rate for farmers. They are required to pay a premium of 2% for all Kharif crops (summer crops) and 1.5% for all Rabi crops (winter crops).

Regarding statement 2, the PMFBY primarily covers crop losses during the crop growing season due to various natural calamities such as drought, flood, cyclone, pest attacks, etc. It does not specifically cover post-harvest losses arising from events like cyclones and unseasonal rains.
