LITTLE ROCK -- The Cooperative Extension Service and Farm Service Agency is offering
expert assistance to Arkansas growers preparing to make major Agricultural Risk Coverage
and Price Loss Coverage decisions related to the 2014 Farm Bill.
A series of interactive online seminars, or “webinars,” will continue on Jan. 20,
with more to follow in February and March. Each webinar will cover a different facet
of the farm program and its effects on farming in Arkansas.
The webinars will be hosted by experts from the University of Arkansas System’s Division
of Agriculture Bobby Coats and the Farm Service Agency’s Tony Franco and Anita Wilson.
Each webinar is expected to last 20-30 minutes, and will be followed by a question
and answer session to deal with the specific concerns of participants.
The webinars will help participants learn about Farm Service Agency Farm Bill programs
and decisions specific to row crop production in Arkansas, including:
“Learning about agricultural risk coverage, price loss coverage and other Farm Bill
features is extremely important for row crop producers,” said Bobby Coats, Professor
of Economics at the Division of Agriculture in Little Rock, “who must make a one-time
decision about base and yield updates toward the end of February.”
The deadline for updates to base acreage and yield is Feb. 27. The deadline for decisions
about agricultural risk coverage and price loss coverage is March 31.
Individuals wishing to participate in the webinars must register for each session
separately. The webinars are conducted through a software program called Zoom. Upon
registration, users will receive an email confirmation with the link to join the webinar
and the system requirements for Zoom.

Additionally, a series of workshops designed to aid growers in using the university
web-based process for making Farm Bill-related decisions has been scheduled for several
locations around the state and more will be added in the near future. The workshops
are being offered jointly by the Farm Service Agency and the University Of Arkansas
System Division Of Agriculture. There is no cost to attend.

Farm Bill policy issues in greater detail:
