Multiple Peril Crop Insurance (MPCI)
Multiple Peril Crop Insurance (MPCI) is a broad-based crop insurance program regulated by the US Department of Agriculture and subsidized by the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC). MPCI provides comprehensive protection against weather related causes of loss and certain other unavoidable perils. MPCI prices are set by the USDA’s Risk Management Agency. These policies are available from a private insurance agent like those you will find at Associated Insurance Counselors.

  • Level of Coverage
    • ​You can insure your crop at from 50 to 85 percent of your APH (Actual Production History, average of 4-10 consecutive years of yield history) in increments of 5%. A low cost, minimum level disaster policy, called” catastrophic” coverage is also available. This insures your crop for 50% of your APH yield and 55% of the RMA price.    
  • Different plans available
    • Yield Protection (YP) Yield Protection plan provides protection against a loss of production
    • Revenue Protection (RP) Revenue Protection Plan provides protection against a loss of revenue caused by price increase or decrease, loss of production, or a combination of both
    • Revenue Protection with Harvest Price Exclusion (RP-HPE) This plan is similar to Revenue Protection (RP) plan, however it provides coverage against loss of revenue caused by price decrease low yields or a combination of both, the price increase is not covered because the guarantee is not adjusted up by the harvest price for this plan. 
  • Area Risk Protection Insurance (ARPI) was released in 2014 and is the newest Area Plan of Insurance. ARPI has its own Basic Provisions, separate from common Crop Insurance Policy. So all APRI plans of insurance follow these guidelines. 
    • There are three APRI Plans of Insurance
    • Area Yield Protection Plan ( AYP) provides coverage based on the experience of the county, rather than an individual farm. A loss may occur if the final county yield falls below the insureds expected yield. Since this plan is based on a county yield, it is possible for a producer to have a low yield on their farm and not receive any payment under this plan
    • Area Revenue Protection (ARP) provides the yield protection, but also provides against a loss of revenue due to production loss, price decline or a combination of both. A loss occurs when the final county revenue falls below the expected county revenue ( or trigger) guarantee.
    • Area Revenue with Harvest Price Exclusion (ARP-HPE) similar to ARP plan except that the guarantee is not adjusted up by the Harvest Price.
