Much of the program is policy-oriented, beginning with discussion of the farm income safety net and the next farm bill. The new SRA (Standard Reinsurance Agreement) is then discussed, followed by other changes in the crop  insurance program.

After lunch, there will be a grain market analysis and outlook, then two sessions discussing the CCIP program and how it is influenced by the recent wide wheat basis, then a final discussion integrating ACRE, SURE and ad hoc disaster programs with crop insurance and how it all fits together.

If you are involved in the crop insurance industry, either as an agent, a producer, or an ag lender, you need to attend this workshop.
