No 271049, 1990 Annual meeting, August 5-8, Vancouver, Canada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Producers' purchase decisions for Multiple Peril Crop Insurance (MPCI) were analyzed under the AREA and Actual Production History (APH) Coverage Plans. Global certainty equivalents were determined to predict MPCI purchases in a simulation using subjective crop yield probability distributions. The frequency of predicted MPCI purchases increased under the APH Plan.
