RMA Risk Management Workshops

With margins on the farm as tight as ever, active risk management is vitally important. Fortunately, crop insurance and grain marketing go hand-in-hand, enabling producers to actively manage their price risk. Come hear experts discuss the most important risk management issues for farmers to consider in 2019.

 

Through a partnership between the Risk Management Agency and National Sorghum Producers, this event is free to attend. Producers of all crops are welcome as the topics covered apply to all crops, and in particular, grain crops. Topics include a how-to on pairing grain marketing with crop insurance, a market outlook, a crop insurance 101 refresher and information on new products such as whole farm revenue protection.
