The most recent Farm Bill links conservation compliance to crop insurance.  If you currently utilize or market crop insurance, it is critical to understand the new requirements.  To help you do this, Western Growers will host a 90-minute webinar with experts from USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA), Farm Services Agency (FSA) and Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS) who will explain the new requirements.

Last week, the California Occupational Safety & Health Standards Board approved changes to the state’s Heat Illness Prevention (HIP) Regulations (Cal. Code of Regs. tit. 8, § 3395).  The board intends to request that the revisions be made effective May 1, 2015, so that the changes are in place prior to the upcoming heat season.
