In the Wheat Belt of the country, winter wheat is planted in the fall and then harvested in the summer. This means that as soon as farmers are done harvesting their spring crops, they are back in the field planting winter wheat.
If they are using precision farming equipment, reporting can be easier and faster with Automated Crop Reporting for both production and acreage reporting.
Benefits of Automated Crop Reporting (ACR)
Electronically send precision-recorded data from FMS to agent.
Report the exact areas that are planted and harvested. Plus, the data submitted to FMH doesn't need to match FSA. In fact, farmers could be under or over reporting for federal programs if the FSA records are used and they don't match their precision data.
Easier Irrigated and Non-Irrigated Planting
Farmers can plant straight through irrigated and non-irrigated ground by utilizing a pivot (shape-file) boundary as a discernible break.
An increased APH may favorably affect a field’s coverage level, per acre guarantee, and claim payment in the event of a loss.
Only insure the actual planted acres, potentially reducing premium.
