In some situations for SCO, the production area used to establish the expected yield did not have any final reported yields. In these instances, the Risk Management Agency (RMA) determined final county yields in accordance with the SCO Endorsement. The attachment identifies the source of the final county yield determination in the affected counties.

In some situations for ARPI and MP, 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 and MP basic provisions. The attachment identifies the RMA basis for final county yield determination in the affected counties with policies.

Description of RMA (ARPI) Determinations

 

Winter Wheat / Total for Crop / Planted Yield - calculated as the acre-weighted average of 2017 wheat yields reported to RMA as actual yields by crop insurance program participants in the county.

Winter Wheat / Total for Crop / Harvested Yield - calculated as the acre-weighted average of non-zero 2017 wheat yields reported to RMA as actual yields by crop insurance program participants in the county. If a participant was found to have un-harvested acreage claim(s) in 2017, acreage from these claims was not included.

Winter Wheat / Irrigated / Harvested Yield - calculated as the acre-weighted average of non-zero 2017 wheat irrigated yields reported to RMA as actual yields by crop insurance program participants in the county. If a participant was found to have un-harvested acreage claim(s) in 2017, acreage from these claims was not included.

Winter Wheat / Non-Irrigated / Harvested Yield - calculated as the acre-weighted average of non-zero 2017 wheat non-irrigated yields reported to RMA as actual yields by crop insurance program participants in the county. If a participant was found to have un-harvested acreage claim(s) in 2017, acreage from these claims was not included.

Includes information reported to RMA as of March 26, 2018
