Webinar: How to Avoid Getting Caught in the Farm Safety Net

This free webinar on March 6 will outline the key provisions of the new farm bill's crop insurance programs so you can make the right decision for your farm.

The recently enacted farm bill requires farmers to make several quick, difficult business decisions this year that will impact their operations for the life of the bill.

They need to decide whether to utilize a price-based program, a program based on county revenue or one using their own farm revenue. They must decide whether to retain or change the base acre data for their farm kept by USDA. And they have a single opportunity to update payment yields for covered commodities.

Join Jonathan Coppess of the University of Illinois as he highlights the key provisions of the new farm bill, sorting through the critical decisions farmers need to make so that they don’t get ensnared in the new farm safety net. Several of these decisions will be set in stone for the next five years.

This free webinar, brought to you by AgWeb, features a 30-minute presentation followed by 15 minutes of questions and answers.
