NCC Sets STAX/Farm Bill Workshops

The National Cotton Council (NCC) has scheduled 25 educational meetings across the Cotton Belt to provide its members with key information regarding insurance options for cotton under The Agricultural Act of 2014.

The meetings will begin in California on November 10 and conclude with two sessions in West Texas on December 10.

Attendees will get an in-depth look at the new Stacked Income Protection Plan (STAX) for cotton and the Supplemental Coverage Option. Coverage levels, expected yields and premium rates will be covered in detail to help equip producers with the information needed to evaluate the insurance options for 2015.

The sessions also will include an update on overall farm bill implementation and a question/answer session.

“This new five-year comprehensive farm law features a greater reliance on crop insurance programs, and our producer members need to understand their options,” said NCC President/CEO Mark Lange. “As with our previous farm bill educational meetings in February, the Council encourages all producers, cotton industry firms and agribusinesses to attend any of these important meetings.”
