Proven Yields and Insurance Units for Crop Insurance
Download Full Text
The first step in developing a crop risk management program for a farm is to establish the proven yield and unit structure. The actual production history yield (APH) is used to set the guarantees under all of the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) backed insurance plans except for the Area Risk Protection Insurance (ARPI) Products. True risk protection must be based on the farm’s production potential. Providing historical yield records is the most realistic method of estimating it.
