Crop Insurance Seminar 2019

More than 90 Lake and Mendocino County winegrape growers attended an informational seminar on January 8, 2019, at The Lodge at Blue Lakes in Upper Lake, California to learn more about the workings of crop insurance and how the federal program can be used to reduce farming risk.
