February 22nd – Woodbridge, CA….. The California Chapter of the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers (ASFMRA) in cooperation with the USDA-NASS will present a webinar on March  18th from 2 to 4 p.m. focusing on the Grape Crush Report, a key publication for industry  professionals that provides a reliable, timely and accurate snapshot of the grape market. The report  contains highly valued information that is often used as the basis for grape contracts and crop  insurance payouts along with income analysis by appraisers, investors and loan underwriters. 

The webinar will include an overview and history of the Grape Crush Report which is produced  annually by the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service.

Contracted grape pricing vs quality adjusted  pricing will be addressed as well as the various types of grape sales. Attendees will learn how to  interpret the publication both from a historical perspective and through the analysis of most recent  data. Pricing trends along with a detailed look at crop size, the impact from smoke taint and  significant changes in grape prices in 2020 will also be covered. “We are excited to be working  with USDA in the development of this webinar that will explore the Grape Crush Report in detail,”  said webinar organizer, Todd Combs, ARA. “We see this as being a great education tool for the  industry.”
