Realtors® Land Institute February 12, 2015 – Land owners and clients trying to determine which of the new federal farm programs are best for them, will have an opportunity to discuss live with experts during a Hot Topic Web Seminar. The hot topic web seminar will cover:

  • Opportunities to reallocate your base acreage program, based on planting history.
  • Updating your farm’s yields on actual yield history.
  • Understanding the three farm-income support options: Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC)-County program, Price Loss Coverage (PLC) program; and the Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC)- Individual program.
  • Provisions of each program, and economic analysis to help guide you and your clients in the decision-making process.

“These programs are much different than previous farm programs. Our web seminar will help farmers cut through the clutter and gain some real insights into how these programs work.” Dr. Mintert.
