The USDA Risk Management Agency (RMA) has contracted a private company to make changes to the USDA Apple policy (Apple Crop Insurance Policy). This policy has worked very well for our growers. The fresh fruit quality option component of the policy alone has been an enormous benefit for New Hampshire growers. After reviewing the number of policies in this region, the private company has decided to conduct an Apple Insurance Listening Session for New Hampshire Orchardists. It is important that apple orchardists attend this free session to express the importance of the fresh fruit quality option component of the policy and the importance of the Apple Crop Insurance Policy to orchardists in New Hampshire.

We invite you to attend this free listening session. This is an opportunity for orchardists to communicate concerns and possible improvements for consideration in the development of future apple crop insurance policy.  R.S.V.P (603) 641-4040 or email george.hamilton@unh.edu.  If you need special accommodations to participate, please contact George Hamilton at least 2 days prior to the event at 603-641-6060 or email george.hamilton@unh.edu.

The University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension is an equal opportunity educator and employer. University of New Hampshire, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and N.H. counties cooperating.
