The formula developed by McKinnon for determining minimum risk forward selling levels for crop producers operating under yield risk is modified so that basis risk can also be taken into account. Example results were presented for soybeans for selected Corn Belt counties using both the modified McKinnon method and an alternative method involving the direct minimization of variance of return.
