Driven by challenging weather and export demand, grain and cotton prices have moved higher since the spring price discovery period that established crop insurance price guarantees for this fall’s crops. More than 90% of corn, soybean and cotton acres were covered by crop insurance this year, with a total of $6 billion in premiums paid to cover $75 billion in liability. Revenue protection policies led the pack, covering almost 70 million acres of soybeans, 77 million acres of corn and 10 million acres of cotton. Harvest price option triggers are all higher based on the discrepancy between current market prices and those during that February price discovery period. Harvest prices are now $10.55/bushel for soybeans, $3.99/bushel for corn and 69 cents/pound for cotton. See more analysis of harvest price option triggers.
