A member of the House Ag Committee says risk management is one his priorities for the next farm bill.
Republican Tracy Mann of Kansas tells Brownfield he wants to maintain coverage levels for crop insurance programs. “There will be efforts to chip away at it and to diminish it. We need to make sure it doesn’t happen. I think we need to look at loan rates, what those numbers are know by acknowledging where commodity prices now but also where input prices are as well.”
He says improving incentives for conservation practices is another focus.
