Using an empirically based simulation model of an extensive set of representative farm acres of corn, soybeans, wheat, and cotton, we analyze how ACRE payments vary under different guarantee price and expected market price scenarios, and how potential ACRE payments and risk reduction are distributed across crops and regions.
