1NASS Published Prices.  The 2009-10 marketing year is a weighted Marketing Year Average (MYA) price that is an estimate.  The 2009-10 MYA price is averaged with the 2008-09 MYA price to set the strike price for the 2010 ACRE program.  Also the 2008-09 MYA price is used to settle claims on the 2008 SURE programs. 
2The 2009-10 MYA price is nearly complete.  The wheat marketing year starts June 1 through May 31 while the marketing year for the other crops is September 1 through August 31.
3The 2010/11 MYA price would need to fall below the strike price to trigger assuming the state yield is equal to the state Olympic 5 year average yield.
4The maximum 2010/11 MYA price necessary to hit the 25% of coverage payment limit.  Once the ACRE 25% of coverage payment limit is hit, then prices will need to fall below 70% times the loan rate ($1.365 for corn) to trigger additional payments because there is no counter cyclical payment. The maximum price will be lower for farmers over the $73,000 payment limit.
5USDA forecasted price released on May 11, 2010.
6It is assumed the market traded nearby futures prices adjusted for percentage monthly basis for MYA cash price, is the best current estimate of the MYA price to settle ACRE claims.  Therefore, the analysis is based on the KSU estimated price rather than the USDA estimated price published by the Office of the Chief Economist.
7Historical NASS yields and prices are published annually.  The current Marketing Year Average prices are updated monthly.  After the marketing year ends, NASS will publish the weights.  The wheat weights will be published in July and the fall crop weights will be published in September for MYA 2009/10.
