Ag Law in the Field


Jun 14, 2018

I'm excited to have Dr. Jason Johnson, a District Economist for Texas A&M Agrilife Extension on the show today to talk about Pasture, Rangeland, and Forage Insurance, more commonly referred to as rainfall insurance. 

As Dr. Johnson explains, this is an insurance product through the USDA Risk Management Agency that allows a producer to essentially insure average rainfall for his or her area, and receive an indemnity payment if no rainfall occurs.  This episode will provide an overview of the program and walks you through the four decisions that must be made in order to enroll.  We also talk about how to sign up, including the deadline to do so, who you can purchase through, and how the RMA shares in the premium cost.
