What to Expect from AGAware®
AGAware® equips Farmers with the skills they need to begin to build a business plan, improve their existing plan, or analyze their cash flow to make their current operation more profitable. Our one-day, seven-hour workshops address a variety of topics pertinent to up-and-coming farmers, including budget preparation, personal finance, risk management, succession planning, and more.
If you have a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Direct Loan, you can earn your USDA FSA Direct Borrower Education Certification through the AGAware program, which is required for FSA Direct Loan recipients.
