Biotech Yield Endorsement (BYE) - 2008
The pilot Biotech Yield Endorsement (BYE), available for the 2008 crop year, allows the producer to receive a premium rate reduction on non-irrigated corn for grain planted to hybrid varieties of corn that contain specific Monsanto triple-stack genetics.
BYE was available for non-irrigated corn in all counties in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, and Minnesota. Producers will be required to purchase an individual yield or revenue insurance plan (APH, RA, or CRC) at a buy-up level of coverage, and plant at least 75 percent of their corn acres on an insured unit to a corn hybrid containing specific Monsanto triple-stack genetics.
