Farm Bill Decision Tool Training Video
Nebraska Extension hosted a farm bill decision tool training session on January 14, 2015 in Lincoln to illustrate and demonstrate the use of online decision tools to help producers make base, yield, and program enrollment decisions with USDA's Farm Service Agency. The training featured the online decision tool created by a consortium from Texas A&M University and the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) at the University of Missouri.
Several sessions from the decision tool training were recorded with the Adobe Connect meeting platform. Those recordings can be watched online to gain further insight into the decision tool and the economics of the pending farm program decisions.
