Yield Protection (YP)

The YP policy works like the APH policy with the exception of the way the price is determined. Yield shortfalls under YP are paid using a projected price which is calculated by averaging the closing price of a designated board of trade futures contract during a specified period of time prior to the planting of the crop. This plan is available for barley (including malting), canola/rapeseed, corn, cotton, grain sorghum, rice, soybeans, sunflower seed, and wheat.
