New U.S. Crop Insurance report to reveal key causes of record $17.3 billion in 2012 crop losses

How can farmers prepare for extreme weather ahead? Extreme weather forced the Federal Crop Insurance Program (FCIP) to pay out a record-breaking $17.3 billion in crop losses last year, as detailed in a new crop insurance report and crop loss mapping tool to be released at Noon EDT/11 a.m. CDT on Tuesday, August 27, by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). 2012's record-breaking crop insurance payouts smashed the trend of annual Federal Crop Insurance payouts from 2001-2010, when crop losses averaged just $4.1 billion a year.

Kid’s Ag day is almost here!

Kansas is in the heartland of Agriculture in the United States. Unfortunately, students in our communities have only a little more knowledge of agriculture, and its direct and indirect roles in our lives, than students living in urban areas. Twenty years ago, the Chamber of Commerce's Agriculture committee sought to change that. Kid's Ag Day was born, and is fondly remembered by many even years later.
