USDA will dish out $2 million in grants to help farmers’ risk management options
Risk management is a key part of any ag operation, and USDA is working to educate more producers about their options.
The Department will spend $2 million for grants to help local organizations educate and train producers about their options. They will pay special attention to underserved areas, beginning farmers, specialty crop growers, as well as service veterans.
The head of the Risk Management Agency says it can be a lot to take in, especially since in the last several years they went from having 300 policies to 600.
“We need to provide the education and share our knowledge about what crop insurance can do for your operation, whether you’re small or large, whether you are a crop grower or a livestock grower,” said Marcia Bunger.
