Through a grant funded by the Southern Region Risk Management Education Center, Texas Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Unit and Agriculture Economics Department have partnered to launch, “The Real World: A Youth Focused, web based Production Agriculture Simulation”. This project includes focus toward developing an on-line simulation series covering critical decision making elements of production agriculture. The goal of this on-line experience is to create a strong awareness of course work and study which would be needed to give future agricultural producers a competitive edge. It addition to marketing options, production practices, and financing, the important element of risk management is explored. This presentation will include demonstration of the prototype, adjustments made based on youth focus group feedback, and an overview of future plans with the site.
