May 31 Ends Canker Coverage / Box Tax Conferences Ongoing

Gary Cooper Citrus, Florida

The 2008 policy period for the Florida Fruit Tree Crop Insurance Policy begins June 1, and the new policy will not include coverage for citrus canker. But if you’re a grower who has a previous policy you have until the end of day May 31 to file a canker claim and still get coverage under that policy. Also in this report, box taxes expected to be discussed at next week’s Citrus Mutual Conference. Listen To wma Report (1:28 wma)
