Posted Jan 17, 2023 5:30 PM

Farmers in Iowa can attend a USDA's Risk Management Agency workshop to learn more about crop insurance options, including those designed for agricultural producers who grow specialty and organic crops.

RMA will host the free in-person workshops Tuesday, January 24, in Davenport, Iowa.

A morning and afternoon session is scheduled, and both have virtual options for producers outside the state or those who can't make it to the in-person event.

The workshops will cover the ins and outs of the Whole-Farm Revenue Protection and Micro Farm programs, which are great insurance options for specialty crop, organic, urban, and other producers with diverse operations.

RMA subject matter experts will provide an in-depth look at these policies. The events will include RMA Administrator Marcia Bunger and other RMA experts. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and get answers in real-time. The Risk Management Agency will hold another round of workshops next month in Michigan.
