Trend Adjusted (TA) Yield
Trend adjusted (TA) yield policy election allow farmers to use Trend Adjusted APH rather than historical average APH for their approved crop insurance yields.
Trend Adjusted Process:
- Farmers have to elect Trend Adjusted Endorsement by sales closing.
- Each county will have a Trend Yield Factor based on historical county yields as reported by NASS.
- Historical yields will be adjusted up based on Trend Yield Factor.
- Trend adjusted APH will almost always be higher than the currently used APH.
