The National Cotton Council (NCC) will host two workshops in Alabama to provide information on cotton insurance options for 2015 under the new farm bill.
Attendees will learn more about the Stacked Income Protection Plan (STAX) and the Supplemental Coverage Option. Coverage levels, expected yields and premium rates will be covered in detail.
The meetings are open to anyone with a vested interest in the cotton industry. They will be held:
- Nov. 19 at 3 p.m. at the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds in Dothan
- Nov. 20 at 9 a.m. at the Tennessee Valley Research & Extension Center in Belle Mina
For those unable to attend, the NCC also plans to host a webinar Dec. 17 from 10 a.m. to noon for the Southeast region. Visit cotton.org for more information.
The Alabama Cotton Commission and Alabama Farmers Federation are co-sponsors of the meetings.
