Federal crop insurance consideration and updates to be addressed in Feb. 17 webinar
After a season of volatile markets, unforgiving weather patterns and a global pandemic, federal crop insurance will play a key role in keeping many agricultural producers afloat in 2021.
Although many producers may rely on this safety net, federal crop insurance can be a difficult topic to navigate for producers, lenders and attorneys.
“Federal crop insurance is an integral part of producers’ risk management throughout the agricultural sector,” Grant Ballard, partner at the firm of Ark Ag Law, PLLC, said. “However, frequent updates and changes can make this topic difficult to follow.”
Ballard will provide clarity on the current landscape of federal crop insurance in a National Agricultural Law Center webinar on Feb. 17. He will update webinar attendees on the latest legal developments and discuss important case law, regulatory changes and issues producers should consider for the 2021 season.
“Grant is an expert in the field of federal crop insurance,” NALC Director Harrison Pittman said. “This webinar will be a great tool to help our stakeholders navigate this field in 2021.”
The webinar is scheduled for noon EST/11 a.m. CST. Those interested can register free of charge at https://bit.ly/2JRlfof.
