It is easier to forecast payments with a price program. Prices lower than the support price will results in payments. In contrast, payments by a revenue program depend on low revenue, not low price. Low prices may be offset by high yields resulting in no payments. Thus, forecasting payments by a revenue program requires consideration of the interactions of yield and price when determining revenue and thus revenue program payments. On the other hand, low revenues, not low prices, are generally a more accurate indicator of poor financial performance. Thus, revenue programs generally are viewed as targeting payments better to years in which revenues are low.
