Frigid temperatures in January that had wineries fearing a repeat of the 2014 bud-killing disaster didn’t do as much damage as expected. “It’s not going to be as bad as people thought earlier,” Melissa Muscedere, president of the Essex Pelee Island Coast (EPIC) group of a dozen wineries, said this week.
The administration is revising the federally subsidized insurance program, with a planned 12% cap on underwriting gains to insurers. By placing a cap, it would lead to savings of $25.7 billion over 10 years. However, the decision to put a cap on the subsidy program would force farmers to pay a larger share of crop insurance premiums – 52% instead of 38%.
