ARC-CO and PLC are the two primary risk management programs under the new Farm Bill. In the attached documents, you will see a table of expected ARC-CO payment levels for each county in Iowa.
Additionally, this information can be viewed on the interactive map. Using the price arrows on the right side of the map, you can scroll across and see estimated potential payments for ARC-CO and PLC at various prices. 2014 county yields have been used to estimate the payments. To see results for corn, slide the price bar between $3.60 and $3.80 (5 cent increments), and for soybeans move the price bar between $9.80 and $10.20 (10 cent increments). Note: These are estimates using USDA/NASS yields – final county yields and payments may differ.
