Peach and Nectarine Variety Listings for 2012 and Subsequent Years
Nectarines are insurable as a varietal class of peaches. The following variety listings are to be used for classification of peaches in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina with respect to maturity by season. These listings are to be used in conjunction with the actuarial documents in the RMA Actuarial Information Browser to determine:
- That the correct Transitional Yield by practice, type, age, density and other characteristics (early/mid/late) is used for insurable blocks or units with less than four years of actual records;
- That the correct Transitional Yield by practice, type, age, density and other characteristics (early/mid/late) is used for yield adjustment for any year selected by the grower that is eligible for yield adjustment and has a yield less than 60 percent of the applicable Transitional Yield and;
- Insurability of varieties based on chilling hour requirements by county published in the Special Provisions.
Varieties not listed should be referred to the Valdosta Regional Office for correct classification.
