Pasture and Forage Crop Insurance Program Webinar
September 26, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm| Free
Some farmers have experienced reduced hay yields or pasture regrowth due to drier-than-normal weather. The Pasture, Rangeland, and Forage (PRF) Rainfall Index crop insurance program is an option that may help offset the costs associated with lack of precipitation on grassland.
An online webinar, scheduled for Sept. 26, from noon–1 p.m., will include an overview of the program, demonstration of a tool that shows historical precipitation by grid and a farmer’s perspective on the program. Speakers include Cornell Cooperative Extension agricultural educator Keith Severson, and Leon Ripley, farmer and owner of Maple Corner Farms, Granville, Massachusetts.
The webinar is for those who want to learn more about the program before the Nov. 15 enrollment deadline.
