County Yield Numbers Set to Be Released – A better number to use in your estimate of Farm Bill payments

NASS will release 2019 county yields for corn and soybeans on Feb 20th. These county yields, along with more up-to-date price information, will be used to refine ARC/PLC decisions for 2019 and 2020.  Those counties that likely will make county yields will be identified.  Farmers in some counties may wish to revise ARC/PLC choices based on this information. These numbers are better estimates to use in your ARC-CO, PLC and ARC-IC programs.  The actual numbers will be determined by RMA and released on June 15 for corn and soybeans.

I have also had a few questions about the wheat yield estimates to use. Here is the link to the county wheat yields estimates https://www.nass.usda.gov/Statistics_by_State/Ohio/Publications/County_Estimates/2019/2019_CE_Wheat_Ohio.pdf
