Do you produce fruits, vegetables or other specialty crops? Are you interested in protecting your crops with crop insurance, but struggling to find crop insurance that works for the diversity of fruits or vegetables you produce on your operation?
Or maybe you’re a crop insurance agent who is interested in strengthening crop insurance options for specialty crop producers. Maybe you’re a banker, and your banking policies require that loan applicants have crop insurance.
The Center for Rural Affairs will hold free webinars on Whole Farm Revenue Protection (WFRP), a crop insurance option that requires crop diversity in order to qualify. The first two webinars are on Thursday, Nov. 17: one for producers and one for insurance agents. All are welcome to attend, there is no cost to participate.
Scott Marlow of Rural Advancement Foundation International and crop insurance expert Clifton Parker will share their knowledge and expertise on how WFRP works and how to apply it to specialty crop producers.
