In cases where FPLI is already an established requirement, the amount of required coverage was found to vary considerably.
Unsurprisingly, in this market there appears to be a positive correlation between the size of the buying firm and its FPLI coverage requirements.
Southeast region, 38% of respondents (n=258) indicated that they currently have FPLI. Their motivation for purchasing this insurance product varied, but generally was due to liability concerns (74% of policy holders), buyer requirements or requests (32%), or as an intentional part of their marketing strategy (14%).
When indicating the extent to which they agreed with statements about FPLI, responses concerning its role in decreasing litigation concerns and market access, elicited some of the strongest opinions (Figure 1).
In general, prior to providing respondents additional information, there was considerable confusion regarding the difference between FPLI and standard liability insurance.
The FPLI market for SMS diversified specialty crop producers is in its infancy.
As a consequence, the regulations governing FPLI and legal actions arising from foodborne illnesses that are governed by state laws often vary considerably.
Tolerance in greenhouse conditions: The FPLI showed statistical differences between treatments (p=0.043), seeing that some genotypes lost a significant amount of biomass as a result of insect infection.
Tolerance to sogata in 'Araure 4' has been reported previously (Vivas 1997); however, in this study this cultivar showed a high FPLI and grade six for direct damage, these results are consistent with those found under field condition (Vivas et al.
Thus, despite having a FPLI similar to the observed in 'Centauro', the lower level of damage expressed in 'Makalioka', suggests the possibility that the small loss of biomass is due to the early insects death rather than the presence of the tolerance mechanism.
Tolerance tests (FPLI, TI, DW2, and DW4) detected four QTLs on chromosomes 1, 6, and 7.
They detected a significant QTL on chromosome 6 in seedbox screening, field screening and antixenosis tests, but in our work the same genomic region was detected for tolerance based on FPLI and DW2.
