Pomegranates

 

The Pomegranate Actual Production History (APH) insurance program is currently being developed by AgriLogic Consulting. Pomegranates are a high value tree fruit crop predominately grown in the San Joaquin Valley of California. This insurance program will provide pomegranate producers with a yield-based risk management tool covering natural causes of loss such as frost during bloom and excess precipitation during fruit maturation.

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