Prune Crop Insurance Outline

Insurable Crop and Eligibility Requirements:


  • Prunes must be of the prune plum varieties grown for the production of dried prunes.
  • Trees must have reached the 7th leaf.
  • Growers must insure all eligible acres of prunes 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 or production, or damage to the prunes on the tree; such as cool wet weather, frost, hail, wind, excessive heat or rain.
  • Plant disease and insect damage if adverse weather caused control measures to be ineffective.
  • Wildlife, birds, earthquake or fire.

Prune Production Guarantee:

  • Prune guarantee is based on the average past delivered tons of prunes graded substandard or better for up to ten years for the orchard to be insured.
  • The maximum coverage level available is 75% of the approved average yield as established by verifiable production records for the orchard.  50%, 55%, 60%, 65% and 70% coverage levels are also available.
  • Unit guarantee:  Actual insurance coverage is by unit, not by acre.  The unit guarantee is the per acre yield multiplied by the coverage level % multiplied by the number of acres in the prune unit.

Insurance Units:

  • Owned or cash rented prune orchards that are not separated by land owned by other people, will be considered all one unit.
  • Prune orchards rented on a crop share, and orchards that are separated by land owned by another person, will be considered as separate insurance coverage units, provided records of past production have been maintained for each proposed unit.
