Fri Oct 31, 2014 02:41 PM CDT

October is the month in which the harvest prices of corn and soybeans for revenue insurance purposes are determined for many states.

Running Average as of 10/31/14: $3.49 per bushel for corn and $9.64 per bushel for soybeans. Based on February averages, the planting guarantee was $4.62 per bushel for corn and $11.36 per bushel for soybeans. "At this time, corn's greater than 25% price drop could trigger payments for insured crops with near normal or below normal yields," said DTN Executive Editor Marcia Zarley Taylor.
