In FebNASS released county data for the 2015 corn and soybean crop. U of I has put together a map showing the potential payment.. This yield divided by the 86% of the benchmark guarantee for Adams, and Hancock County will yield a 2015 ARC-County corn payment. For example for Hancock County the revenue guarantee is $782.92 * 86% = $673.31 / 180 corn yield = $3.74. For Adams County the revenue guarantee is $719.44 * 86% = $618.72 / 158 corn yield = $3.92. 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://farmdocdaily.illinois.edu/2016/02/2015-arc-co-payment-estimates-corn-soybeans.html
