Free Webinar Coming Dec. 12! Crop Insurance and Hemp: The Whole Farm Approach
December 12, 2019 @ 10:00 am MST
Hemp can now be sold legally across the country. For the 2020 crop year the only way to insure hemp is through a unique federally subsidized Whole Farm Revenue Protection (WFRP) policy.
This policy protects the value of the whole farm’s revenue rather than any specific product a farmer grows.
For 2020, industrial hemp in seed, flower, or fiber form can be one of the products insured by a WFRP policy.
On December 12, Jeff Schahczenski, Agricultural and Natural Resource Economist with the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) will give an introduction on this whole-farm approach to insuring hemp in 2020 in a free webinar.
The webinar will take place from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Mountain Standard Time.
