Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) September 24, 2015
Close to 90 percent of crop land in the United States has some sort of crop insurance. That’s more than 290 million acres of protected crop land through the Federal Crop Insurance Program.
The 2014 Farm Bill led to a big change in crop insurance. Many felt it empowered farmers and ranchers by giving them more risk management options, and making insurance more affordable for beginning farmers.
So how did the Farm Bill end up impacting American farmers in the 2015 crop year? That’s the focus of the AAEA Workshop “Crop Insurance and the 2014 Farm Bill: Reports and Analyses From the Field.” It is being held October 5-7, 2015, in Louisville, Kentucky, at the Marriott Louisville Downtown.
The workshop will provide a look at real-life effects of the Farm Bill when it comes to income, participation, and what is in store for 2016 and beyond. Participants will hear from economics experts and people in the fields during this two-day workshop on this critical topic for one of the country's most important industries.
