USDA Hosts Virtual Workshops on Risk-Management Options for Agriculture

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is offering virtual workshops on Nov. 15 and Dec. 13, 2022 about the latest improvements to the Whole-Farm Revenue Protection (WFRP) and the Micro Farm insurance options.

These insurance options are available to specialty crop, organic, urban and direct market producers.

Recent updates to these insurance offerings include: 

  • Doubling the maximum insurable revenue under WFRP, now up to $17 million; 
  • More than tripling the size of farm operations eligible for Micro Farm to $350,000 in approved revenue; and
  • Reducing paperwork requirements for WFRP.  

The USDA’s Risk Management Agency will host these workshops for agricultural producers via Microsoft Teams events. Click the link below to join; RSVP is not required:
