National 2016/2017 ARC-CO County Yield Percentage Map
This map shows the percentage that the 2016 county yield, as reported by FSA, needs to be above or below the Long Run Average Yield for the maximum payment to be triggered. For example, if a county is showing 19.4%, it can have a 2016 county yield up to 19.4% above it’s long-run average yield and still receive the maximum ARC-CO payment. Therefore, the darker the green, the higher the 2016 yield can be above the long-run average and still receive the maximum ARC-CO payment. Counties in red will have to have a yield below their long-run average to trigger the maximum ARC-CO payment.
Hover your cursor over the county of interest to see more detail. 2016 MYA price projections will be updated every month (more detail HERE). The "Trigger Yield" gives the uppermost county yield to receive any ARC-CO payment, while the "Trigger Yield 4 Max Pay" gives the uppermost county yield to receive the maximum ARC-CO payment.
