There are problems with the preservation of the vines throughout the entire country. 2014 started very badly, yet from the spring – frequent rain-showers, pouring rain, hail and storms, which hampered the normal process of the phenophase of the vines. The grapes crop will most likely register a decrease but the loss will be different for the different regions in the country. In some places the crops may reach 60% - 70% of last year’s ones, while in other places there will be almost nothing to harvest.

The crop insurance claims have now started to be filed in higher numbers as a result of the wheat that has been damaged by the frosts that have struck several parts of the country, and many agents feel that the numbers will continue to climb.

USA - Crop Insurance focus for cotton in farm program

Cotton producers will have some important decisions to make once sign-up for the farm program begins, and the most important thing to remember is that cotton is not a covered commodity under the 2014 farm bill. For cotton producers, deciding what crop insurance option to select will be the most important decision. Beginning with the 2015 crop, cotton producers may choose two crop insurance options, either Stacked Income Protection program (STAX) or Supplemental Coverage Option (SCO), which must be selected from a crop insurance agent.

Canada - What happened to peaches this summer? Blame the winter

If you found an Essex County-grown peach this summer, you were extremely lucky. Record cold winter temperatures in January not only wiped out peach buds and this summer’s crop, it killed some trees. And that second bad year for peaches and other tender fruit trees in the last three years has orchard owners banking on kinder weather this winter and next spring. The commercial grower ripped out 10 acres of clingstone peach trees that either died or were ailing from the windy cold January nights that got down to -25C or colder.

Italy - Hail on melons and secondary deseases: risk event

"After yet another hailstorm in the Mantua area, and the serious downy mildew problems, we have lost over 200 hectares of melons, i.e. almost the entire July and August production," explains Ettore Cagna, chairman of Don Camillo. "Such a disaster means it will be very difficult for us to comply with the collection schedule arranged with our clients." "Of course we had planned our production at the beginning of the season according to different schedules and areas, but we lost practically everything this year!" "We are indeed preparing an emergency programme to try and reduce any inconvenience for our clients though," concludes Mr. Cagna. Source - FreshPLaza
