Risk Management Education

Working at times in partnership with RMA
or on its own, NCIS conducts seminars on risk
management for limited-resource and socially
disadvantaged farmers and others interested in
better managing risk. The goal is that helping
farmers develop better risk management tools
will ensure their long-term viability.

Marketing Risk Management
Workshops
NCIS partnered with Extension Educators
at Delaware State University and the University
of Maryland-Eastern Shore to teach a series of
workshops to help small, limited resource, and
socially disadvantaged producers of specialty
crops manage their marketing risks.  The objec-

tive was to help farmers understand their risk
exposure, determine their costs of production,
and develop marketing plans for their farms.
The project consisted of three workshops in each
state and 60 hours of individualized instruction.
Topics included how to use the business planning
approach to evaluate risk exposure and the five
decision variables that compose the marketing
mix (production, price, placement, promotion,
and people), how to use crop insurance to manage risk, and identifying specific goals and actions to complete marketing plans. This project
was the result of a competitive proposal prepared
by NCIS and selected by RMA to be funded as a
Cooperative Agreement. Dr. Laurence Crane was
Project Director and primary instructor.

Risk Management Workshops
