The AGR-Lite (Adjusted Gross Revenue-Lite) federal crop insurance plan is now available in 28 states. The whole-farm revenue plan of insurance provides protection against low revenue due to unavoidable natural disasters and revenue fluctuations.
John Hewlett, University of Wyoming farm and ranch management specialist, says AGR-Lite provides producers blanket insurance against revenue losses that may occur for either livestock or crop enterprises. To help producers better understand the new insurance, Hewlett is presenting workshops in various Wyoming locations (contact your local Extension office for more details):
