The Excessive Yields Report, first released in July of 2018, is available for Approved Insurance Providers (AIPs) through AIP HyDRA.
Excessive yields are individual yields on a year, county, crop-type-practice basis that are so large as to rise above an algorithmically determined threshold. The Excessive Yield Report identifies individual yield records from the P15A Yield History record that may not be realistically achievable.
The report is released annually in mid-July and generated against all open years.
AIPs shall review excessive yields from the report and follow Actual Production History (APH) review requirements in accordance with Appendix IV of the Standard Reinsurance Agreement (SRA) and the Crop Insurance Handbook (CIH).
Reviews conducted in connection with the results of the Excessive Yields Report will require documentation via submission of appropriate Quality Control Reporting (P57) and Quality Control Review Correction (P57A) records.
All records used in the review are subject to the three-year document retention requirement.
Effective until superseded or rescinded.
