In partnership with Michigan Farm Bureau Insurance, Michigan State University Extension is providing six whole farm revenue protection (WFRP) insurance workshops.  These workshops will feature guest speaker Dave Paul, former USDA Risk Management Agency Director of the Pacific Northwest and longtime advocate for WFRP.  Dave has 17 years’ experience with whole farm insurance and had a strong influence in the writing of the WFRP policy prior to retiring from RMA.

All workshops will include a tailored presentation and examples of the specialty crops in your area.  Workshops held in areas of larger fruit and vegetable production will include Dr. Adam J. Kantrovich of Michigan State University Extension providing a short educational briefing on the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program also known as NAP and the available web-based decision tool.

All workshops will last about three hours and will include a question and answer portion.

Join us at one of the MSU Extension meetings to learn more about whole farm revenue protection insurance and what it could mean for your business.  The workshops will be held in locations throughout Michigan during September and October 2016.

The meetings are free but pre-registration is required.
