In accordance with Section 3 of the ARPI Crop Provisions, Section 14 of the MP Crop Provisions and Section 10 of the SCO Endorsement, approved final county yields, final county revenues, harvest revenues and harvest margins for the 2016 and 2017 crop years will be available by close of business today in the following formats:

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.

Non-Irrigated / Planted Yield - calculated as the acre-weighted average of 2016 non-irrigated yields reported to RMA as actual yields by crop insurance program participants in the county.

Total for Crop / Harvested Yield - calculated as the acre-weighted average of non-zero 2016 yields reported to RMA as actual yields by crop insurance program participants in the county.
