MANHATTAN, Kan. — Agricultural producers in Kansas and other states this year can participate in Kansas State University’s Risk & Profit Conference from wherever they are as the university takes the entire conference online. The conference is set for Aug. 10-14.

From producers to processors to consumers, the new coronavirus has affected every aspect of life, so this year’s conference will focus on the economics of agriculture during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Different sessions are scheduled for each day, including the popular livestock and grain market outlooks. Sessions run from noon to 1:30 p.m. each day except Thursday, when an expanded schedule runs from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. That day also features an open chat at lunchtime with extension specialists.

A complete schedule and registration is available online. Questions can be directed to Rich Llewelyn at rvl@ksu.edu.
