Commodity groups sponsoring ACRE webinar

Is ACRE the right safety net for you? If you are considering participating in the alternative farm program safety net called ACRE, the deadline for sign-up is June 1.

A special webinar is scheduled for 7 a.m. Central Time Thursday, May 6 to help you assess how well the ACRE program protected crop revenue for 2009 and whether it makes sense for you in 2010-2012.

Guests include Farm Service Agency ACRE expert Brent Orr and Ohio State University Economist Carl Zulauf. Pre-registrants will receive handouts in advance.

The event is sponsored by the National Corn Growers Association, the National Association of Wheat Growers, and the American Soybean Association.
