Business / Agriculture / Yield: The number of bushels (or pounds or hundredweight) that a farmer harvests per acre. Under the Food Security Act of 1985, the farm program payment yield was the farmer’s average yield for the 1981-1985 crop years, excluding the years when the yields were highest and lowest. Payment yields used to implement farm programs have remained frozen at the level fixed in the 1985 farm bill ever since.
