Not sure if this has already come through, but here's a link to a *paid
study* for farmers and ranchers about their use of crop insurance programs
- if you're using crop insurance *or *if you aren't, they want to hear from
you! And please share!
The 2014 Farm Bill greatly increased access to crop insurance for organic,
diversified, and specialty crop growers, but so far only a small percentage
of those who are eligible have taken advantage of these new opportunities.
The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is conducting a
survey of attitudes about crop insurance, in order to plan educational
efforts and make recommendations to the USDA. Confidential and anonymous,
the survey takes just 20-30 minutes (on any computer, smart phone, or other
mobile device) and is open to anyone who is farming or ranching
commercially in the United States. A $20 honorarium is offered to the
initial group of respondents. (Honorarium funds are limited.) Please take
the survey at www.ncat.org/cropinsurance and share the link with all who
may be interested. For more information, e-mail cropinsurance at ncat.org.
