Buy-Up Example
• Forage Sorghum
– 100 Acres
– 2 T Approved Yield
– 2014 Price $137.33
– 100% share
– Not SDA/LR/BF
– Selected 60/100 Coverage Level
2014 Farm Bill NAP Training
31
Buy-Up Example (Continued)
• Premium Calculation
– Yield x Coverage Level x Price x Acres x Share =
Guarantee (used only for calculation of
premium)
– Guarantee x .0525 = Premium
• So:
– 2T x .60 x $137.33 x 100 Ac x 100% = $16,480
– $16,480 x .0525 = $865 Premium for Buy-Up
– The $250 Administrative Fee also applies.
2014 Farm Bill NAP Training
32
Buy-Up Example (Continued)
• Harvests 1 ton of Forage Sorghum. There
was an eligible cause of loss.
– 2 T Yield x 60% coverage level = 1.2 T coverage
– 1.2 T coverage – 1 T harvest = .2 T loss
– .2 T loss x $137.33 x 100 Ac x 100% share =
$2,747 NAP payment.
2014 Farm Bill NAP Training
33
Buy-Up Example (Continued)
• If the same producer selected CAT only:
– $250 administrative fee is only cost.
• With the same 1 T harvest:
– 1 T coverage (50%) – 1 T harvest = no covered
loss. Zero Payment
