The Quality Loss Option (QL) is a new crop insurance option that you can elect starting with the 2021 crop year. The Risk Management Agency implemented the QL in response to the 2018 Farm Bill to carry out research and development that establishes an alternative method for adjusting quality losses that will not impact your Actual Production History (APH). The QL allows exclusion of quality loss from an APH database in circumstances where a quality loss occurs. The QL will be offered at an actuarially sound premium rate.
