This article reports selected summary statistics from a survey of county/area Extension educators from Indiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, and Texas. Major subject categories reported include: characteristics of Extension training, Extension educators' risk knowledge and evaluation of producers' risk management knowledge, Extension educators' interest in risk management education, and evaluation of producers' interest in risk management education. Findings suggest that Extension educators consider themselves deficient in terms of preparation in agricultural risk management. Ultimately, if Extension educators receive better training in risk management techniques, they will be able to better serve their clientele.
