This University of Illinois spreadsheet calculates Agricultural Risk Coverage for County Coverage (ARC-CO), Agricultural Risk Coverage for Individual Coverage (ARC-IC), and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) payments. County yields and market year average (MYA) prices are brought in for a user-specified state-county-crop combination. Users then can change 2018 through 2020 county yields and prices to see ARC-CO, ARC-IC, and PLC payments under those yields and prices.READ MORE
