USDA Rolls Out APH Exclusion
Tuesday, October 21, 2014 2:31PM CDT
A provision in the 2014 farm bill essentially waives Actual Production History yields that collapsed due to extreme weather. The APH exclusion would adjust a farmer's actual yields for crop insurance in counties where the average planted-acre yield tumbled at least 50% below a 10-year county average. USDA is allowing farmers of some spring crops to take advantage of the exclusion, but winter wheat farmers may have to wait until at least next year.
