To establish a safety net for his business as protection against another missed crop, Punkin Center Gins owner Al Crisp enrolled his business in Arbol’s first-of-a-kind Area Yield Program for cotton. Arbol’s Cotton Yield Program leverages independent climate data from dClimate to provide protection for businesses in the cotton industry against yield losses. Having AYP helped save his business.
Punkin Center only processed sixty-six hundred bales of cotton during the year it enrolled in AYP. To put that in perspective, that represents only enough cotton for just a little bit over a week’s worth of ginning during a normal year.
