When it comes to government programs, especially those related to crop insurance, there are no shortage or questions.

Kansas State University Research and Extension hopes to provide answers to some of those questions about the ACRE (Average Crop Revenue Election) program in a one-hour webinar Tuesday night.

The session begins at 7 p.m. and will be repeated at noon on Tuesday. It will feature extension economists Art Barnaby and Troy Dumler.

"Farmers who have not made an ACRE decision or simply would like to have the latest information will likely want to participate in one of these webinars," Barnaby said. "The falling grain prices have greatly increased the odds of an ACRE payment on corn, grain sorghum and soybeans."

Early registration is closed but individuals and groups can still participate. The fee is $50 for individuals and $250 for a group license.

People who wish to be part of a group participating in the webinar can join others at the Sedgwick County Extension office at both the 7:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. times at the office, 7001 W. 21st Street in Wichita. Contact Gary Cramer or Jackie Fees at 316-660-0100 to participate. Another group will meet at the Pawnee County Extension office in the Courthouse, at 715 Broadway, in Larned at 7:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Contact Rodney Wallace at 620-285-6901 to join this group on Tuesday.

More information, including registration is available on the K-State Research and Extension Agricultural Economics Web site: www.agmanager.info.
