    Actual Production History

    How it Works

    Actual Production History (APH) provides coverage to guarantee yields based on your actual production history. This policy provides protection against low yields, poor quality, replanting costs,1 or when planting is prevented.1 The covered perils include nearly all natural disasters – drought, excess moisture, cold and frost, wildlife, disease, and insects.
