Subject:

2016 Crop Year Area Risk Protection Insurance (ARPI) Final County Yields and Final County Revenues for Cotton

In accordance with Section 3 of the ARPI Crop Provisions, approved final county yields, final and county revenues for the 2016 crop year cotton will be available by close of business today in the following formats:

• Actuarial Information Browser (AIB) online reporting application: webapp.rma.usda.gov/apps/actuarialinformationbrowser2016

• Actuarial Data Master (ADM) bulk data file download: www.rma.usda.gov/FTP/References/actuarial_data_master/2016

• Summary listing: www.rma.usda.gov/FTP/Miscellaneous_Files/Area_Yield_Data/Final_Yields

In some situations for ARPI, the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) was unable to publish a county estimate on the same basis as the offer available. Where NASS was unable to publish a county estimate, RMA determined the final county yield in accordance with the ARPI basic provisions. The attachment identifies the RMA basis for final county yield determination in the affected counties with policies.
