Agriculture.com Staff 01/04/2006 @ 9:31am

Texas producers wanting to learn how to evaluate crop insurance options are invited to attend a one-day short course in Amarillo taught by Art Barnaby. Barnaby is a leading authority on crop insurance products and was one of the developers of crop revenue coverage insurance.

Barnaby is agricultural economist at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. He will cover hail, multi-peril and crop revenue coverage, as well as other insurance currently or soon to be available.

The workshop, "Incorporating Crop Insurance into the Marketing Plan" will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 24 at the Texas A&M University System Agricultural Research and Extension Center in Amarillo.

"If you've ever wondered about the pros and cons of the various crop insurance products or what is the best level of insurance, you need to attend this course," said Dr. Steve Amosson, Texas Cooperative Extension economist.

The short course is a part of the Advanced Topic Series hosted by Extension's Master Marketer Educational System, Amosson said.

A fee of $75 will cover instruction, materials and lunch. For more information visit the Master Marketer Web site at http://mastermarketer.tamu.edu
