Area Yield Protection

Area Yield Protection (AYP) is designed as a risk management tool to insure against widespread loss of production of the insured crop in a county. AYP is primarily intended for use by those producers whose farm yields tend to follow the average County Yield. AYP is a county-based insurance product that pays the producer an indemnity in the event the Final County Yield falls below the Trigger Yield selected by the producer.
