Processing tomatoes are insurable in four counties in Pennsylvania; they may be insurable in other counties by written agreement if specific criteria are met. Processing tomatoes are insurable if they are grown under, and in accordance with, a processor contract, are executed by the acreage reporting date, and were not excluded from the contract at any time during the year. The policy does not cover acreage on which tomatoes were grown in either of the previous two years, if they are interplanted with another crop, or those planted into an established grass or legume. Direct seeded tomatoes are not insurable.
