Recent changes in crop insurance and more that are coming with the 2002 Farm Bill have prompted plenty of questions--and a little confusion. But help is available.

Kansas State University agricultural economist Art Barnaby maintains a Website available to anyone with an Internet connection at www.agecon.ksu.edu/risk/. Information is updated frequently regarding current crop insurance and government farm programs.

"The wheat harvest price used to settle CRC [crop revenue coverage] and IP [income protection] crop insurance claims is now being updated daily on the web," said Barnaby, a risk management specialist with K-State Research and Extension.

Barnaby also is a contributing writer for Successful Farming Magazine. His crop insurance information can be found on the magazine's Website at www.agriculture.com/aginsure/.
