Due to circumstances beyond our control, the session has been moved to a Zoom Virtual Session.
Please follow the link below to Register for the October 12, 2:00 pm Zoom Presentation.
The USDA is in the process of implementing a new Federal Crop Insurance program designed to provide greenhouse growers an opportunity to insure against losses to destruction orders based on detention of actionable plant disease vectors. The informational session is open to Michigan Greenhouse Growers, Insurance Agents, Extension and Industry Specialists, and the general public.
MGGC has been advocating for crop insurance provisions within the U.S. Farm Bill for years. We continue to press the issue nationally with Senator Stabenow and our federal industry allies. The greenhouse industry has historically remained underinsured compared to other commodities, thus elevating the need for enhancing options, flexibility and affordability in the current offerings of crop insurance.
Please join this informational opportunity hosted by MGGC and DGI Propagators. There will be a presentation outlining the program followed by a Q&A session.
