LUBBOCK — South Plains farmers will soon be making another farm bill decision, and the Texas A&M Agricultural Food Policy Center has developed an online tool to assist producers in their decision-making process.
The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service has arranged two meetings for Aug. 28 to explain how to use the online tool. Joe Outlaw, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension economist and co-director of AFPC, College Station, will be speaking at both meetings.
There is no registration or fee for either meeting. For additional information, call Jackie Smith, AgriLife Extension economist in Lubbock, at 806-746-6101.
The first meeting will be at 9 a.m. in Seminole at the Gaines County Civic Building, 405 NW. 5th St. The second meeting will be at 2 p.m. in Lubbock at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center auditorium. The center is located north of the airport at 1102 E. Farm-to-Market Road 1294.
AgriLife Extension specialists also wanted to remind farmers that they still have time to go to their local U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency and sign up for FSA services, if they have not yet done so.
