Crops Growers Hosts Webinar: How Fruit Crop Insurance Responds After a Loss


CORTLAND, N.Y. — Crop insurance is a widely adopted risk management tool utilized by over 10,000 northeast farmers, producers and growers. This year’s late May freeze has left the northeast fruit industry preparing for a challenging harvest. Join Crop Growers on July 6 for a free webinar covering fruit crop insurance.

“The Federal Crop Insurance Program provides northeast fruit producers an affordable and dependable safety net,” said Jeremy Forrett, Senior Vice President with Crop Growers. “Today, over 1,500 northeast fruit farmers depend on the crop insurance program to protect their livelihood.”

Fruit Crop Insurance Program – How Crop Insurance Responds After a Loss will be hosted on Thursday, July 6, at 12:00 p.m. EST. During this webinar, Crop Growers crop insurance specialists will discuss how crop insurance policies respond to losses and what steps farmers need to take in the event of a loss.

“Over the past 10 years, northeast fruit producers have received over $300 million in crop insurance claim payments due to weather related crop losses to offset revenue losses in their business,” continued Jeremy. “With over $350 million of protection, covering 100,000 acres of fruit, northeast producers have the confidence to reinvest in their business.”

This webinar is free to attend and open to any producer and the service providers who support them. Visit FarmCreditEast.com/Webinars for more information and to register.


Over the past 20 years, Crop Growers has developed risk management plans for northeast farmers that have responded to weather and market related crop losses by paying indemnities in excess of $500 million.
