Description/Notes: 

University of Maryland’s Department of Agricultural Resource Economics (AREC), Maryland Dept. of Agriculture (MDA), USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) and U of Maryland Extension will sponsor a Farm Bill Workshop to aid farmers in understanding the new 2014 Farm Bill programs.

Focus will be on the two new commodity programs that impact wheat, corn, barley, oats, soybeans, and changes to the dairy program. The new farm bill presents new decisions that agricultural producers must make. Many of these decisions will be onetime decisions and producers will need to understand how the decision will impact their operation. Producers will have the option to reallocate base acreage, update payment yield, and make the one time decision between the two new Farm bill programs…
Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC)
Price Loss Coverage (PLC)

Extension educators will walk producers through the new programs and the tools that exist to aid in these one-time program decisions, and other changes that could impact their eligibility.
