Farmers who have experienced reduced hay yields or pasture regrowth due to drier-than-normal weather will want to take part in an online webinar on Wednesday.
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Cayuga County agriculture educator Keith Severson is one of the presenters. He calls the webinar a good chance to learn about the optional insurance plan.
He tells Finger Lakes News Radio the timing for the online learning session is ideal.
The crop insurance program could help offset the costs associated with lack of precipitation on grassland.
The free one hour webinar begins at noon. Registration is required, and you can sign up here.
