IRVINE, Calif. (June 21, 2016) -- Western Growers is disappointed with yesterday’s federal court decision that struck down a five-year-old federal Guidance document allowing the use of composted municipal green waste on organic farms in California.
Western Growers is working closely with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Risk Management Agency to enhance and improve the current strawberry crop insurance program that was established to protect growers against losses from low yield, low price or a combination of both.
