The “new” crop insurance options are private products, not RMA subsidized products. From what I’ve seen they are all overpriced. I’m not familiar with the exact names you stated above but they sound like what everyone else is putting out there. It’s a supplemental product that is meant to try and cover you for a bigger percentage of your APH. So on MPCI you have 80% coverage you can now buy a private product that can cover your from 80-95% or 80-90% giving you that additional 10-15% coverage BUT from what I’ve got quotes on it is costing close to or around another $20 an acre. Well if you have EU your total MPCI bill probably isn’t $20 an acre. Just doesn’t seem cost effective to me.
As for PLC and ARC.... flip a coin, haha!
Only MPCI changes out there are multi county EU coverage. If you qualify for EU in one county and not the other county you farm in you can now combine counties to have EU for both. Then there are some little things regarding white and waxy corn but nothing crazy.
