LINCOLN — The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Department of Agricultural Economics will continue its live webinar series, “Land Management Quarterly,” on Nov. 16, at noon Central time.
Since 2019, this online series has addressed common management problems for Nebraska landowners, agricultural operators and related stakeholders interested in the latest insight on trends in real estate, managing agricultural land and solutions for addressing challenges in the upcoming growing season.
The November webinar will cover recent findings from the 2020 USDA-National Agricultural Statistics Service county-level cash rent survey and trends in farm programs influencing operations across the state. The presentation will also include a special segment on communication issues arising from closing out 2020 leases while reviewing considerations for 2021. The session will conclude with an “Ask the Experts” session, offering participants the chance to get live answers to their land or lease questions.
The webinar will be led by Jim Jansen and Allan Vyhnalek, who are both in the Department of Agricultural Economics. Jansen focuses on agricultural finance and land economics, along with leading Nebraska Extension’s statewide land management outreach efforts. Vyhnalek is a farm succession and farmland management extension educator working throughout Nebraska.
“As 2020 comes to a close, we have seen an unprecedented level of uncertainty due to COVID-19 and growing concerns of extensive drought across Nebraska,” Jansen said. “The November webinar will cover recent trends in the land industry and farm programs involving Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC), along with addressing common communication issues arising as we end one year and look forward to the next growing season.”
The webinars are free to attend. Register and submit questions at agecon.unl.edu/landmanagement.
