LISTENING SESSION -NEW YORK APPLE GROWERS PROPOSED CHANGES TO APPLE CROP INSURANCE PROGRAM THURSDAY, JULY 9, 2020

You are invited to participate in a Listening Session with USDA's Risk Management Agency (RMA) to discuss proposed changes to the Apple Policy.
WHY
In 2017 and 2018, RMA and its contractor, Agralytica, met with apple growers and other
insurance stakeholders to discuss the apple program and identify potential changes to enhance coverage while also addressing increasing loss ratios and resultant premium costs. This listening session is a follow-up to those previous sessions. During this session, RMA will present proposed changes to growers and their insurance representatives and ask for their comments. The feedback received will be used to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed changes.
The diagram in the pdf below provides a timeline of RMA's continued engagement with the apple industry as well as tentative timing for the revised policy's release.

Thursday, July 9, 2020 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM EST
