APH unlikely for 2015 crop year, Vilsack says

By Larry Dreiling

The U.S. Department of Agriculture will be unable to implement Actual Production History (APH) provisions of the 2014 farm bill this year, according to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack.

 

The APH provision in the 2014 farm bill is supposed to make it possible for farmers to update their crop history and exclude years where yields are more than 50 percent below their county’s 10-year production average.

 

Such an update could dramatically improve the number of bushels per acre on which farmers could base their crop insurance policy. That could prove to be of great assistance should drought conditions reappear in the coming growing season to affect their crops.

 

Vilsack told reporters on a conference call Aug. 6 that USDA does not have “APH on its to-do” list for 2015 because it was more important to implement the Stacked Income Protection Program (STAX) for cotton and the Supplemental Coverage Option (SCO) insurance programs as well as the new Price Loss Coverage (PLC) and Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC) commodity programs.
