WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Rural Center is planning a series of “Women in Farming” risk management workshops this spring and summer.

The group says in a news release that all four workshops will highlight opportunities and challenges women face in farming.

Specialty crop production is the focus of the first workshop March 14 in Lawrence and the second on March 28 in Bird City.

A third workshop on May 9 in Linn will look at financial and legal risk management and cover conservation practices on the farm.

Wrapping up the series is a July 11 workshop in Emporia that focuses on soil health, cover crops and integrated crop and livestock farming.
