Crop Insurance and the 2014 Farm Bill Symposium
Symposium Overview
The current political climate in Washington has resulted in a paradigm shift toward alternative risk management strategies, primarily crop insurance offerings to producers, to help mitigate risks of agriculture. In 2013, AAEA supported the first Crop Insurance Symposium in a time when there was a great deal of uncertainty regarding the nature and timing of the next Farm Bill. This year’s offering, Crop Insurance Symposium II, is structured to examine and assess the consequences and implications of the 2014 Farm Bill from the perspective of agency implementation, industry adoption and producer management of federal crop insurance under the new policy paradigm where crop insurance is a primary risk management tool.

Registration Rates:
  • $150 USD (before September 2)
  • $200 USD (September 3-September 24)
The deadline to register is Wednesday, September 24. Cancellations made before September 24 will receive a refund minus a $50 processing fee. After September 24 refunds will not be granted.
