That being said, we believe a well- positioned, well- researched portfolio of high yield credits should outperform most other fixed income categories, albeit at lower than average historical yield
For growers, access to site-specific historical yield
measurements could be the difference between making a profit or taking a loss," said Greg Knoblauch, president and CEO for EarthMap Solutions.
Supply is a function of yield per acre and arable land under cultivation and although historical yield
per acre for many crops including corn has increased, the yield change is not consistent year over year or ever increasing, and does decline from time to time.
Starting with the 2012 crop year, farmers raising corn and soybeans in most counties in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio and Wisconsin will have an option to use the trend-adjusted APH based on their county's historical yield
Utilizing advanced agronomy, historical yield
and loss data, and weather history and forecasts, TWI 2012 for corn and soybeans covers the major weather perils growers may face during the growing season.
Increased yields, measured against historical yield
data, are expected to materially increase as capital improvements and enhancements to land management practices are made.
In a 2002 to 2006 study led by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, NASA scientists, Ainsworth, ARS plant physiologist Fitz Booker, and university scientists investigated widespread ozone damage to soybeans in Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana using ozone surface monitors, satellite instruments, and historical yield
Past "Money Matters" columns have covered using historical yield
data to properly calibrate the "grid.
The result is a model-generated yield curve that matches the shape of the historical yield
curve, but exhibits less volatility in long rates.
A typical example of agricultural insurance is area-yield crop insurance, which bases pay-out on the shortfall of an area's realised crop yield relative to its average historical yield
Holding crop area fixed and assuming only historical yield
growth, food production will fall far short of the needs by 2050," said John Kruse.
The user in puts data, such as number of students admitted, historical yield
rates, average graduation rates, and revenue per student, and the ROI Yield Calculator produces real-time reports that estimate likely program usage, percentage of audience likely to be affected by the program, expected revenue saved by implementing EYOp, and other benefits of implementing the program.
