This technical correction is being published to remove section 13 of the “California avocado crop insurance provisions,” published December 27, 2017 (Docket No. FCIC-17-0002). Section 13 excludes the use of written agreements by not allowing the written agreement provisions in the Common Crop Insurance Policy Basic Provisions to apply. This provision was necessary when the program was a pilot program to ensure there were no changes made to the policy so that the existing terms would be evaluated to make sure they were actuarially sound and there were no program integrity issues. Once the pilot program is completed, evaluated, and approved for permanence, the restriction on written agreements is no longer necessary. As a result of the removal of section 13, FCIC is allowing the use of written agreements under the California avocado crop provisions and redesignating subtitle numbering from section 14 to section 13.
