Management Experience

The Management Experience Transfer (MET) index is used to establish a starting yield for a crop where no individual yield previously exists and more accurately reflects the individual customer’s farm management abilities than a Risk Zone average yield.

Your MET index is greater than 1.0 if your yield experience on other insured crops is better than the area average; it is less than 1.0 if your yield experience on other insured crops is lower than the area average. New customers with no previous yield history start with a MET index of 1.0. Once your yields are established, they are updated using your individual annual production information.
