Actual Production History

Every season, farmers face an array of risks from nature: drought, floods, extreme temperatures, insects and more. The Multiple-Peril Crop Insurance (MPCI) program provides protection against yield losses for most crops from nearly all natural disasters.  APH guarantees yields based on your actual production history.

  • Comprehensive protection against weather-related causes of loss and certain other unavoidable perils
  • Protects against low yields, poor quality, replanting costs1 or when planting is prevented1
  • Guarantee is based on producer's own yield records
  • Various levels of coverage are available

Benefits

  • MPCI provides a source of income when low crop yields are caused by covered perils.
  • Adds security to farm loans and low-level security for marketing plans.
  • Minimum Catastrophic coverage is available, and provisions are available for farmers with limited resources.
  • Available on a wide variety of crops.

Loss Triggers

MPCI policies pay when your actual yield falls below the approved guarantee. Losses paid at Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) determined price listed on your summary of coverage.
