The following Individual Row Factor table provides a row factor for each individual row, including the skipped row, in the planting pattern to be used to calculate the skip-row yield conversion factor for skip-row planting patterns not listed in Table 2 or Table 3 for skip-row planted cotton and ELS cotton in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas.

F. Table 2 Does Not Apply (Continued)

The following table provides instructions for calculate the skip-row yield conversion factor for skip-row planting patterns not listed in Table 2 or Table 3 for skip-row planted cotton and ELS cotton in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas.

STEP ACTION
1 Using the Individual Row Factor table, assign the appropriate row factor for each individual row, including the skipped row, in the planting pattern. Row factors are based on the planting pattern only; therefore, turning at the end of the field has no effect on the calculation.
2 Sum the row factors from step 1.
3 Divide the result of step 2 by the total number of rows in the planting pattern, including the skipped rows. Round the result to 4 decimals.
4 Divide the result of step 3 by the FSA percent planted factor applicable to the skip-row planting pattern. Round the result to 2 decimals.

Example 1: Insured C planted cotton in Baylor County, Texas, using a 2 rows planted, 3 rows skipped, 1 row planted with 40 inch rows planting pattern. Assign the appropriate row factor to each individual row using the Individual Row Factor table (step 1) as follows.

PLANTING PATTERN = 2x3x1 with 40-inch row width
Row 1 2 3 4 5 6
Planted Planted Skipped Skipped Skipped Planted
Assigned Row Factor 1.29 1.29 0.00 0.00 0.00 1.32

Sum the row factors (step 2), then divide the total by the total rows in the planting pattern (step 3). 1.29 + 1.29 + 0.00 + 0.00 + 0.00 + 1.32 = 3.90 ÷ 6 rows = 0.6500

Divide the result by the FSA percent planted factor for the planting pattern (step 4). The skip-row yield conversion factor for the planting pattern is 1.30 (0.6500 ÷ 0.5000).

F. Table 2 Does Not Apply (Continued)

Example 2: Insured D planted cotton in Baylor County, Texas, using a 4 rows planted, 1 row skipped, 2 rows planted, 1 row skipped with 36 inch rows planting pattern. Assign the appropriate row factor to each individual row using the Individual Row Factor table (step 1) as follows.

PLANTING PATTERN = 4x1x2x1 with 36-inch row width
Row 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Planted Planted Planted Planted Skipped Planted Planted Skipped
Assigned Row Factor 1.29 1.00 1.00 1.29 0.00 1.29 1.29 0.00

Sum the row factors (step 2), then divide the total by the total rows in the planting pattern (step 3).

1.29 + 1.00 + 1.00 + 1.29 + 0.00 + 1.29 + 1.29 + 0.00 = 7.16 ÷ 8 rows = 0.8950

Divide the result by the FSA percent planted factor for the planting pattern (step 4). The skip-row yield conversion factor for the planting pattern is 1.19 (0.8950 ÷ 0.7500).
