On Wednesday, March 11 at 11:00 a.m. central, the K-State Department of Agricultural Economics will offer an hour-long webinar to update farmers and others on the decision between selecting the Price Loss Coverage (PLC) vs. Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC). This update will highlight some of the new resources available and also the Marketing Year Average (MYA) price estimates after the January prices are released. This will be the final KSU webinar before the sign-up deadline at the end of March.

We also would like to highlight some new resources on AgManager, under Decision Tools: http://www.agmanager.info/policy/commodity/2012/default.asp
First off, there is now a map to show announced 2014 Kansas NASS County Yields: http://www.agmanager.info/policy/commodity/2012/Yields.asp
Taking that a step further, there is also a map to show Kansas projected ARC-CO payments for wheat, corn, sorghum, and soybeans: http://www.agmanager.info/policy/commodity/2012/Payment.asp Note that Jan. prices will be released at 3 pm today, so by Monday your estimate may change slightly to reflect the new price projections.
For complete information, we have have created a spreadsheet for all covered commodities in all U.S. counties that shows NASS yields, corresponding ARC-CO payments at different MYA price levels, AND tradeoff spreadsheets for 2015. Again, price estimates will be updated on Monday, but go ahead and take a look at this tool: http://www.agmanager.info/policy/commodity/2012/ARC-2014_Tradeoff-PLC-ARC-2015.xlsx
