Vegetable farmers face many challenges. Thankfully, risk management programs can take the edge off of major losses from lower yields, crop losses, or prevented planting from weather events.

The latest publication from the Beginning Farmers DEMaND series explores risk management programs for vegetable producers.  Offered through the USDA’s Risk Management Agency and Farm Service Agency, these programs help to mitigate some of the production risk that producers face on an annual basis.

Download the latest bulletin in the Beginning Farmers DEMaND (Developing and Educating Managers and New Decision-makers) series today to learn how these programs can help your farm business manage production risk.
