California’s Real Gold | Agribusiness Insurance Product Highlight

Published on May 24, 2016


Agriculture is a part of California’s DNA. It’s the top producing state in the country in terms of crop cash receipts (by a long shot — see table below). It’s the number one state in terms of wine production (producing more than 90% of the US’ wine product). And if you’ve lived in California for any length of time, you understand that water is such an important resource to the state because it doesn’t just affect our lawns, it affects the food supply not just for the state, but for the whole country and beyond.
