Risk Management Education Needs

The North Central Extension Risk Management Education Center continues to assess the risk management needs of producers in the north central region by holding focus groups, developing surveys, and discussion with producers and professionals working in the agricultural industry. Needs continue to evolve and are dependent on many factors such as; commodity prices, farm bill programs, financial access, input costs, legal and labor issues, and many more. These needs are taken into account when developing each RFA. Because some issues may be so important, Advisory Council members may request to see applications from project directors dealing with some of these current risk management issues.

Read a discussion of risk management issues and needs which have surfaced in recent years from the Center’s audiences, stakeholders, and Advisory Council members. This discussion provides ideas and guidance for individuals or groups working to educate producers and who may be considering an application for Center funding to deliver risk management education.
