Trigger Yield Charts


Trigger yields assist producers with crop insurance and risk management decisions. Understanding when loss payments are triggered is an important part of choosing the correct level of crop insurance coverage.

In the calculator below, based on a revenue plan, you can enter estimated or actual values for base price, level of coverage, APH yield, harvest price, and actual yield. Hover your pointer over each of the entry categories for more detail.

Click the Calculate button to generate a bushel guarantee, trigger yield, revenue guarantee, value of the crop and and estimated indemnity payment/acre.

Below those outputs is a quick-reference table based on the level of coverage you entered showing various APHs, the resulting bushel guarantee and trigger yields.

The base and harvest prices in the calculator are the most recent official crop insurance price and is updated when RMA announces new prices. During the price discovery period, if you want a calculation using the interim average, contact your crop insurance officer.

The results provided by this tool are for estimation purposes only; actual loss triggers may vary.
