Economic Aid For Apple Growers

Sponsored by:

Almost all California apple growers are eligible for economic aid this year, so says the California Farm Bureau Federation.

The federal government will make $75 million available to apple farmers across the country because of low prices they received in 2000.

The California Apple Commission says juice from China and subsidized imports from other nations caused the prices to plunge.

California apple growers received more than $5 million from the program last year.
