K-State agricultural economist Monte Vandeveer talks about how the Pasture, Rangeland and Forage Insurance Program works, with the enrollment deadline for the 2019 growing season coming up soon. He explains how pasture and forage losses are calculated, based on grid rainfall data, and points to an on-line Risk Management Agency tool that helps a producer calculate the potential coverage payout. Also, K-State Research and Extension risk management specialist Art Barnaby discusses the Whole Farm Revenue Protection program, which just might help row crop producers confronted with difficulties at harvest time.
