Looks like the Feb average of December futures will be close to $6.00 in corn. We will have to see where the sweet spot is when we get the cost numbers put together. It usually is around 75%. This year might be the year to put more on as you will be getting significant revenue protection along with yield. Should be interesting.

At this point of the year it is really hard to know what to do. The farm bill has to pass congress to know exactly what to do. With the fed gov paying 60% of the premium we had to pay $20 per acre for an 80% coverage level on corn. If the fed subsidy goes away we would be looking at around $35 per acre premium for corn EU or $84/acre OU corn (this is in northern SD). From what I have heard in the "I States" premiums are $5-10. In SD that's a no brainer, however I don't farm there nor do I know your propensity for volatile weather. Also, is there going to be a disaster program? If so, they usually base your payments off of your guarantee. At this point there are too many unanswered questions to make a good informed decision.
