Area Yield Protection (AYP) protects your business against widespread loss of yield within your county.
Using multiple data sources for setting and determining county yields, AYP pays an indemnity if the final county average yield falls below the trigger level selected by the producer. AYP is subsidized by the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC), and offers coverage levels ranging from 65% - 90% with maximum policy protection of 80% - 120% of the established price multiplied by the expected county yield.
Area Revenue Protection (ARP) is based on the same principle as Area Yield Protection (AYP), but ARP protects against loss of revenue caused by low prices, low yields or a combination of both. It protects your business against loss of revenue based on average per-acre revenue within your county. Using multiple data sources for setting and determining county yields, ARP pays an indemnity if the county average per-acre revenue falls below the trigger level selected by the producer. ARP also includes the Harvest Price Option, which allows the producer to increase expected county revenue if the harvest price is higher than the expected price.
