Last Friday Feb 20th, NASS released county data for the 2014 corn and soybean crop. Paul Neiffer has put together tables showing the potential payment or in the case of Western Illinois lack of payment due to the exceptional corn and soybean yield for our area. This yield divided by the 86% of the benchmark guarantee for Adams, and Hancock County will not yield a 2014 ARC-County corn payment unless prices average $3.08 or lower for the 2014 crop year. For example for Hancock County the revenue guarantee is $782.92 * 86% = $673.31 / 218 corn yield = $3.09. For Adams County the revenue guarantee is $719.44 * 86% = $618.72 / 202 corn yield = $3.06. These yields can still be tweaked, but past history has shown that we are within 5 bushels of the final yield number for the county. http://www.farmcpatoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Illinois.pdf
