Trigger Yield Calculator

Trigger yields assist producers with crop insurance and risk management decisions. Understanding what will trigger loss payments is an important part of choosing the correct level of crop insurance coverage.

The results provided by this tool are for estimation purposes only; actual loss triggers may vary. Contact your Farm Credit Services of America insurance officer for more information.

CORN AND SOYBEAN MOISTURE ADJUSTMENT FACTORS

Moisture adjustment is applied prior to applying any qualifying quality adjustment factors such as test weight, kernel damage, etc.

With the Revenue Protection plan, a price guarantee is set in both the spring (Projected) and fall (Harvest). Your final Revenue Guarantee is based on the higher of the spring or fall price. See how prices change from the time they are set before planting until harvest with our price history chart.
