Watch the recording of our May 13, 2024 webinar, Finding the Funding: Federal conservation and crop insurance policy takeaways in a Farm Bill year. 

Hear from policy experts on agriculture conservation and crop insurance about the trends in federal conservation program enrollment, the farmer safety net and policy changes that could maximize benefit for natural resources and farmers alike. As the 2024 Farm Bill draws closer to reality and more provisions become public, it may be difficult to decipher what the text means for farmers and eaters. On the webinar, panelists will decode these developments for a general audience, discuss how previous Farm Bills have helped farmers conserve land and water resources, and highlight the potential for improvement in the 2024 Farm Bill.
