RMA Announces Apple Crop Insurance Listening Sessions

In April 2022, USApple submitted comments to USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) regarding proposed changes to the apple crop insurance program. In June 2022, RMA indicated that they would delay the announcement of a final rule until additional listening sessions were held – the dates and locations of those listening sessions has just been announced.
