K-State conducting meetings to help answer Farm Bill questions
This is an excerpt from an in-depth article that discusses decisions farmers will have to make regarding Farm Bill programs. It also links to information on K-State meetings about these topics. Kansas farmers and landowners have big decisions to make in the next two months on updating yields and base acres as well as electing new Farm Bill programs. Luckily, K-State Research and Extension is conducting a series of meetings across the state to help, sponsored in part by Kansas Wheat. About 350 people attended the first Making the Decision Meeting at the Sedgwick County Extension Office on Monday, Jan. 12.
Dr. Mykel Taylor, K-State assistant professor in agricultural economics, stressed that the decisions made in 2015 will affect more than this year's crop.
"You are signing up for something now for the life of the Farm Bill," Taylor said. "And that is at least five years."
A quick overview of the decisions and options available follows below. Kansas Wheat encourages all farmers and landowners to utilize the resources provided by www.AgManager.Info, which includes information on the K-State Research & Extension meetings.
For reference, a farm as used below describes an individual Farm Service Agency (FSA) serial number. As with other farm programs, each FSA-designated farm requires its own paperwork and signatures. However, for these programs, farmers have the ability to make different decisions on different FSA-designated farms.
