Area Yield Protection Plans (AYP)

The Area Yield Protection (AYP) plan provides coverage based on the experience of the county, rather than an individual farm. A loss may occur if the final county yield falls below the insured’s expected (or trigger) yield. FCIC issues the final county yield in the calendar year following the insured crop year.

Since this plan is based on a county yield and not a producer’s individual yield, it is possible for a producer to have a low yield on their farm and not receive any payment under this plan.
