Nov. 13 Dumas crop insurance workshop cancelled
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A Nov. 13 training session in Dumas on crop insurance has been cancelled because of speakers’ schedule conflicts. The meeting was one of three set for that week to help farmers handle risk management in view of new provisions in the 2014 Farm Bill.
The training sessions for Nov. 11 in Jonesboro and Nov. 12 in Forrest City will still be held. Participants who registered for the Dumas meeting will be notified by email of the cancellation.
The sessions are sponsored by the Southern Risk Management Education Center and the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture. They will feature panel discussions with John Anderson of the American Farm Bureau Federation, Dave Goeller, risk management educator and grain producer from Nebraska, local producers and a representative from the National Crop Insurance Services.
There is no cost to attend and lunch will be provided. To register visit http://forms.uaex.edu/economics/aciem.asp.
“Crop insurance has now become the primary governmentally assisted tool for risk management for our producers,” said H.L. Goodwin, professor of agricultural economics and agribusiness and co-director of the Southern Risk Management Education Center. “That is why we are sponsoring this important informational event."
