Home > News > Florida Citrus Fruit Crop Insurance Provision Changes

The following changes are applicable for the 2025 and succeeding crop years for the Florida Citrus Fruit crop insurance program via Product Management Bulletin PM-23-046:

  • Insurability requirements were revised to reflect a 100-box/acre minimum in at least one of the three previous years for trees eight years and older, unless allowed by a determined yield.
  • The term Adverse Weather was replaced with several named individual perils as insurable causes of loss, and excess wind was further defined.
  • A notice is required within 30 days if the insured acreage is damaged by post-bloom fruit drop.
  • Minor modifications were made to price calculations for specialty citrus due to the loss of relied upon data that had come from the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) and receipt of an additional juice type oranges from the Florida Department of Citrus (FDOC).
