USDA/FCIC RIN: 0563-AC69 Publication ID: Fall 2020 
Title: Area Risk Protection Insurance Basic Provisions; Common Crop Insurance Policy, Basic Provisions; and Common Crop Insurance Regulations, Coarse Grains Crop Provisions 

This rule amended the Common Crop Insurance Policy Basic Provisions to implement the changes contained in the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018. Section 11122 of the 2018 Farm Bill required that FCIC research and develop methods of adjusting for quality losses that 1) Do not impact the actual production history of a producer; 2) Allow producers to exclude a quality loss from their actual production history when the quality loss is insufficient to trigger an indemnity payment; 3) Is optional for a producer to use; and 4) Is offered at an actuarially sound premium rate. In addition to changes mandated by the 2018 Farm Bill, FCIC made some discretionary changes to the CCIP Basic Provisions, the Area Risk Protection Insurance (ARPI) Basic Provisions, and the Coarse Grains Crop Insurance Provisions.
