Kansas State University is hosting 15 educational meetings across the state as farmers face major decisions by the end of March under the new farm bill.
Agricultural economists Art Barnaby and Mykel Taylor from Kansas State University plan to travel the state in January and February to provide information on commodity programs and changes to crop insurance. They will be joined by representatives from the Agriculture Department's Farm Service Agency.
The first event is Monday in Wichita. That meeting will be unlike the other 14 meetings because it is the only one in which the new cotton program will be covered.
Meetings also will cover tools funded by the Agriculture Department designed to help farmers make decisions.
