  • Acreage must be irrigated and the trees must have reached the 6th growing season after being set out. (can insure 5th leaf with written agreement)
  • Growers must insure all eligible almond acres in the county in which they receive a share of the crop.  When orchards are rented on a crop share, either the landlord or operator, or both, can insure their share in the crop.

Insured Causes of Loss:

  • Any adverse weather resulting in damage to the bloom, poor pollination, lack of production, or damage to the almonds on the tree or on the ground for harvesting, such as cool wet weather, frost, hail, wind, excessive heat or rain.
  • Wildlife, birds or non-domesticated animals.
  • Insects and plant disease unless improper application or control measures.

Almond Production Guarantee:

  • Guarantee is based on the average of delivered production of total meat pounds from the acreage for up to the past 10 crop years. 
  • For young orchards or those with less than 4 years of production records, the average yield will be established by inspection and area average yields for similar orchards.
  • The maximum coverage level available is 75% of the approved average yield as established by verifiable production records from the orchard.  50%, 55%, 60%, 65%, 70% coverage levels also available.
  • Unit guarantee:  Actual insurance coverage is by unit, not by acre.  The unit guarantee is the per acre average yield multiplied by the coverage level % multiplied by the number of acres in the almond insurance unit.
