The $426 billion federal farm bill Congress passed in December has some changes in it that farmers and others would benefit from knowing about. On April 11, The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) and partners are hosting a Farm Bill Summit in Versailles to address those changes and what they may mean for the state’s farmers and producers.
Speakers will address government assistance paid or partially paid for in the farm bill including crop insurance; compensation for farmers who set aside a portion of their land for conservation; and payments to farmers who grow corn, soybeans, wheat, and other commodities when losses occur due to low commodities prices or low revenue.
