  • Understanding Whole-Farm Insurance for Specialized, Diversified, and Organic Farms

    This webinar explains insurance options for specialized, diversified, and organic farms, including Adjusted Gross Revenue Lite (AGR-Lite)— a unique type of federally subsided crop insurance that holds great promise to serve the needs of smaller, diverse, specialty crop, organic, and direct-market farmers. While most insurance products are tied to a specific crop or commodity, AGR-Lite is based on whole-farm revenue and allows farmers who grow several specialty crops, high value crops (including organic), or diverse crops and livestock products, to insure their production based on the farm's historic revenue. The webinar will explain how AGR-Lite works, and will also demonstrate NCAT's new AGR-Lite Wizard assessment tool.

  • After Tobacco: In Appalachia, Farmers Hope the Future is Organic

    From http://TheHardestYear.com: This still looks like tobacco country. Tractors still slow traffic on the roads. An autumn celebration is still called the "Tobacco Festival." And family farms still have the region's trademark tall barns where the harvest's giant green leaves once cured in the rafters until they were rusty brown and ready for market. But despite decades of tradition, tobacco farming is on the wane in Appalachia. The elimination of government price supports and increased costs of production have prompted many tobacco growers to seek out new crops in order to get by. What some have found may change the face of agriculture in this remote region. See the full story at http://TheHardestYear.com.
