JONESBORO, Ark. – With the March 31 deadline for Farm Bill base and yield updates
and election of Agricultural Risk Coverage or Price Loss Coverage looming, there are
two labs set for Tuesday and Friday for farmers to get hands-on experience with a
web-based decision aid.
“To help farmers and landowners with their 2014 Farm Bill decisions, we are continuing
to offer workshops this month on the Texas A&M decision aid,” said Scott Stiles, extension
economist for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture.
Remaining March workshops are scheduled for the following times and locations:
Arkansas State University – JonesboroTuesday, March 17, 6 p.m.Arkansas State University College of AgricultureComputer Lab (AG 242)Contact: email@example.com or 870-972-2481
East Arkansas Community College – WynneFriday, March 20, 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.Computer Lab (TBA)Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or 870-238-5745
These are hands-on training sessions that would be applicable for farm managers, bankers,
accountants, attorneys, insurance agents, farmers, and landlords. The workshops will
help attendees gain a much better understanding of the decisions related to updating
yields, reallocating base acreage, and selecting Agricultural Risk Coverage, or ARC,
as well as Price Loss Coverage , or PLC.
If you are unable to attend either of these workshops, the Texas A&M decision aid
