Last week, CCM co-hosted meetings in Exeter, Riverside, and Ventura to get industry input on a new young tree crop insurance. Representatives from AgriLogic Consulting put together a presentation with an outline of the program that would be in place to protect citrus trees 1-4 years of age. Throughout the presentation, industry members were asked for information that could better the program and gave their suggested changes.
CCM helped establish the current crop insurance program which now has more than 85% of the industry insured. By hosting these meetings last week, we were able to get input on a program that will benefit the industry most if the industry helps create the parameters.
