Three crop insurance webinars set for this week

January 8, 2019

LYONS - Crop insurance is the topic of three webinars set for this week hosted by the Center for Rural Affairs.

Policy Manager Anna Johnson says these sessions are for beginning and any other farmers and ranchers who may be unfamiliar with how crop insurance works and whether it is applicable for their operations.

Johnson says one of the webinars will address the insurance product Whole Farm Revenue Protection, which covers an operation’s revenue.

“Which is a product that was first created under the 2014 Farm Bill, and it expands crop insurance for a whole bunch of farmers and ranchers who maybe weren’t able to access it previously because it allows you to cover crops and livestock aren’t covered by other plans.”

The webinars are set for Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday this week from noon to 1:30.

To register for the free sessions go to the website CFRA.org/Events.
