Join eOrganic and the Organic Farming Research Foundation for a webinar on organic crop insurance options for 2020-2021! Managing risk is of utmost importance for all farmers, especially for organic producers. During this webinar, attendees will learn how changes to federal crop insurance programs in the 2018 Farm Bill may impact organic and transitioning farmers. Presenters will also discuss several provisions in the 2018 Farm Bill that can help organic farmers build healthy soils and thereby reduce on-farm risks including those related to climate change. The webinar is open to all including farmers and ranchers, policy makers, extension agents and more. This project supports the Risk Management Agency’s goal of increasing access to risk management practices and programs for underserved audiences. This webinar is funded in partnership with the USDA Risk Management Agency, under Award #RM18RMEPP522C020.
Presenters: Mark Lipson of UC Santa Cruz, Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS), and Mark Schonbeck of the Organic Farming Research Foundation
