AGR-Lite – Understanding Whole-Farm Insurance for the Specialized, Diversified, and Organic Farm

“AGR-Lite – Understanding Whole-Farm Insurance for the Specialized, Diversified, and Organic Farms” explains Adjusted Gross Revenue Lite (AGR-Lite) – a unique, federally subsidized crop-insurance product that holds great promise to serve the needs of smaller, diverse, specialty crop, organic, and direct-market farmers.

The webinar, broadcast September 13, 2012, by the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) and funded by the USDA Risk Management Agency, describes how AGR-Lite works; provides a brief overview of crop-insurance limitations for specialized, diversified, and organic smaller farms, as well as demonstrates NCAT’s new AGR-Lite Wizard assessment tool. This tool assists farmers and agricultural professionals in evaluating the usefulness of whole-farm revenue insurance.
