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

Spring price discovery takes place every February. During the survey period, market expectations for prices are averaged to determine the spring crop insurance price. When combined with a farmer’s yield history, the spring prices and yield determine the level of revenue protection available during the crop year. Follow the page for daily updates through Feb. 28.


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.

Crop Insurance Information

Multi-county Enterprise Unit Endorsement

Farmers now can choose to combine acreage of an insured crop across county lines into a Multi-county Enterprise Unit Endorsement (MCEU). This allows farmers to qualify for the better EU premium rate on land that wasn’t eligible for an EU in the past.

The basics:

  • One county must qualify independently for EU; the other county must not qualify.
  • The land in the combined EU must all have the same elections (insurance plan, coverage level and practice, such as irrigated or nonirrigated).
  • The MCEU doesn’t combine the county crop policies – only all insured acreage of the crop/practice. Separate applications and policies are required for each county.
  • APH yields for each county are not impacted.
  • Premium, guarantee and liability will be calculated separately for each county based on the acres and actuarial documents for that county. But the EU premium discount will be determined by using the total acres in the MCEU.

Your Farm Credit Services of America crop insurance team has been trained to understand the rules involved. We are ready to help you assess whether the new MCEU would be advantageous to your operation.
