LINCOLN — An upcoming Nebraska Extension workshop will help farmers develop marketing plans for 2020.
“Risk and Reward: Using Crop Insurance and Marketing to Manage Farm Survival” will be presented in Scottsbluff, North Platte, West Point and Clay Center in January and February.
Extension economists will discuss the role of farm location and yield/price relations in making informed grain marketing and crop insurance decisions.
“This is a unique opportunity to think about grain marketing differently,” said Jessica Groskopf, a regional economist with Nebraska Extension. “Often, we think of marketing and crop insurance as two separate decisions. This workshop will show the importance of how these tools work together to help farms survive.”
