Quarantine Crop Insurance Now Available for Citrus, Avocados

This fall, citrus and avocado growers looking to lessen the impact that a quarantine can have on their operations, can take advantage of a pilot quarantine crop insurance program soon to be offered through Mary Roach Insurance Agency Inc. The coverage will be available by late August or early September to cover the 2010-2011 crop year for all citrus-growing counties in California and most avocado-growing counties.
