Much of the western half of the United States, including Texas, is facing serious drought conditions.  Today, I'm joined by Dr. Justin Benavidez, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Economist to discuss some of the programs available to help producers manage risk during a drought.  In particular, we're focusing on LFP, PRF, ELAP, NAP, and LIP.
