What is SRMEC?
The Southern Risk Management Education Center (SRMEC) was established at the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture in 2009. It is funded by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) and is one of four regional Extension Risk Management Education Centers located throughout the country.
The mission of the Southern Center and the national program is educating America’s farmers and ranchers to manage the unique risks of producing food for the world’s table.
SRMEC Empowers Producers to Manage Risks! The Southern Center in conjunction with the other three regional Centers conducts the Extension Risk Management Education Competitive Grants Program.
