Passing along the word from Jake Jacobs, UVM Agricultural Risk Management and Crop Insurance Education Program, on the impending crop insurance deadline for apples:
Please pass along a reminder to apple growers that the crop insurance sales closing date is November 20. RMA has recently re-vamped their website and the most current RMA Fact Sheet about apple crop insurance can be found at the link below. In past years, the sales closing date for peaches was the same as the date for apple insurance. For the most up-to-date information, growers should contact their crop insurance agents.
