For Grain Commodity Traders

Knowing the yield means knowing the price.

Progressive WeatherYield provides a continuous view of crop yield, giving commodity traders the ability to accurately anticipate supply at county, state, and national levels. Progressive WeatherYield updates up to 2x a day during the growing season, with a model based on our proprietary 1.3B samples of yield, carefully collected across millions of acres and 26 states – as well as 20 years of detailed weather matched to the sample locations.

For Ag Insurers

Knowing the yield means knowing your reserves.

Progressive WeatherYield ensures ongoing awareness of accurate yield expectations, to optimize the accuracy of loss reserves, and to support private product underwriting and marketing. Progressive WeatherYield provides weekly updates on actual weather, with a 15-day forecast overlay for even more accurate results. This forecast provides access to highly accurate information for determining reserves and sales.

Beginning April 1, 2020, the forecast frequency will be increased to daily, and the weather forecast will be integrated into the yield model, predicting forecasts for up to 6 months ahead.
