Crop insurance for diverse operations: Whole Farm Revenue Protection

Thursday, February 9, 2017 to Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Are you a Nebraska farmer or rancher who can't get crop insurance for all of your crops? Or a new Nebraska farmer who doesn't know much about crop insurance and whether it can work for you?

Join us at local workshops to learn about Whole Farm Revenue Protection, crop insurance offered by USDA that encourages on-farm diversity.

Whole Farm Revenue Protection (WFRP) is new, offered in every county and rewards on-farm diversity. Instead of relying on specific policies for their crops, producers can insure the revenue for several crops all at once.

The Center will be hosting four workshops to discuss what WFRP can do for you and details on how to apply. Here's what you'll learn by attending:

  • How WFRP works, John Schreiter of Hudson Insurance Group
  • Purchasing WFRP for a vegetable production, Kelly Jackson of Daniels Produce
  • What WFRP covers - fruits, vegetables, commodity crops, and livestock under $1 million in revenues
  • Whether WFRP is a good fit for your operation
