Stacked Income Protection Program
The Stacked Income Protection Plan (STAX) is a new crop insurance product for upland cotton that provides coverage for a portion of the expected revenue for your area. Most often your area will be your county, but it may include other counties or even practices as necessary to obtain a credible amount of data to establish an expected yield and premium rate.
STAX may be purchased on its own, or in conjunction with another policy—including Yield Protection, Revenue Protection, Revenue Protection with the Harvest Price Exclusion, and any of the Area Risk Protection Insurance policies. We refer to this as a "companion policy." The federal government will pay for 80 percent of the premium cost for STAX.
