Farm Bill Would Offer Choice Of Safety Net

January 28, 2014, 12:23 PM

Farm Bill Would Offer Choice Of Safety Net
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A massive farm bill set for a U.S. House floor vote Wednesday would allow growers to choose between two types of farm safety nets.

South Dakota Corn Growers Association executive director Lisa Richardson says the bill's commodity title gives farmers the choice between a revenue based agriculture risk coverage program or a price loss coverage program.

Richardson says growers will have to make their decisions right away, so there's going to have to be a significant amount of education on the benefits of each.

The decision can be important for growers of crops such as corn, for which natural disasters such as floods and droughts can cause fluctuations in yields.

Farm-state lawmakers have been working for more than two years to get a new five-year farm bill passed.
