The Kiwifruit Actual Production History (APH) insurance program has been approved by the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation for implementation in 12 California counties for the 2024 commodity year. Kiwifruit are grown in vineyards and are intended for consumption in the fresh market. This insurance program will provide kiwifruit producers with a yield-based risk management tool covering natural causes of loss.

APH insurance programs are currently available for a number of other crops in the same region among which are grapes and olives. Once developed and approved by the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation Board of Directors, Kiwifruit APH will be a federally subsidized crop insurance program available in major California kiwifruit producing counties through Approved Insurance Providers.
