So I posted a topic on a Facebook forum that delt with harvest price on MPCI crop insurance. I gave the conventional and organic prices. I don't think most ag operators like the government messing around in their business. Thing is the row crop man is so used to now ARC or PLC, subsidised crop insurance premiums, young farmer loans, etc that I think most just assume it's free money. If I don't take it somebody else will. Which is true, but does all of this stuff need to be subsidised? So in discussing some aspects of organic farming the other person mentioned that there's a grant to help pay for certification. Which there's a difference between subsidy and grant. My point is, isn't the whole reason organic has a higher price is because it's a more expensive crop to raise? Unless there's a natural disaster livestock guys don't get in FSA pocket that bad. I'm not like some that will complain and moan about farm programs. Seriously though I thought a grant for the certification was BS
