Whole Farm Revenue Protection Webinars for commodity producers

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Center for Rural Affairs will hold free webinars on Whole Farm Revenue Protection (WFRP), a crop insurance option that requires crop diversity in order to qualify. The webinars on Wednesday, Nov. 30 are on commodity production; one for producers and one for insurance agents. All are welcome to attend, there is no cost to participate.

Both farmers and crop insurance agents are pretty familiar with crop insurance for commodity crops. But every so often, there’s that one crop that doesn’t seem to fit any crop insurance products. Maybe it’s organic oats, or soybeans for a specialty market, or a specialty seed crop.  

There is now a crop insurance product for these situations, available everywhere in the country. It’s called Whole Farm Revenue Protection.   

Center for Rural Affairs will hold two free webinars on how Whole Farm Revenue Protection can be applied to commodity operations. The webinars will be on on Wednesday, Nov. 30: one for producers and one for insurance agents. All are welcome to attend, and there is no cost to participate.

Scott Marlow of Rural Advancement Foundation International and crop insurance expert Clifton Parker will share their knowledge and expertise on how Whole Farm Revenue Protection works and how to apply it to specialty crop producers.

2 to 3 p.m. CST: for producers. Register here.
3 to 4 p.m. CST: for insurance agents. Register here.
