Last week’s AGWEEK published an article on the crunch time for crop agents and their farmer clients marketing crop insurance. AGWEEK Staff Writer Jonathan Knutson interviewed PIA National Crop Insurance Working Group Chairman and PIAND National Director Dan Weber, along with Executive Director Steve Becher of PIA of North Dakota. In addition, Becher and Crop Working Group member Kent Olson met with Rep. Kevin Cramer’s Ag/Energy liaison Daryl Leis for a briefing on crop insurance and the Farm Bill. There are concerns that caps on farmer subsidies for crop insurance and mandatory conservation linkage will threaten farmer participation. Rep. Cramer supports PIA’s position on these issues.
