Planting the Seed - August 2019
How is harvest data used for Precision Solutions?
Data collected during harvest can be used for three purposes: production reporting, a claim settlement in the event of a loss, and APH reviews.
Precision Solutions helps to streamline all of these crop insurance processes by increasing data accuracy and decreasing paperwork - saving time for the farmer, agent, and adjuster.
Farmer's steps to using precision data for crop insurance during harvest:
The farmer can download harvest data from their FMS, and send it electronically to their agent through Automated Crop Reporting (ACR). There is no need for the farmer to print paperwork or enter the data into a form for the agent.
If the farmer has a production loss, they can provide precision records for faster, more simplified adjusting. They only need to provide three documents to their adjuster: Seeding Map, Calibration Report, and Harvest Wet-Weight Map. The farmer does not need to report planting or production via ACR to use precision data for a claim.
If a farmer is using Precision Solutions for either reporting or claims, they are already gathering the accurate information needed to provide total production numbers for an APH review. Less paperwork means less storage and faster assembly of records for reviews.
FMH Calibration Report Forms
Proper calibration is important for accurate precision data reporting from farming equipment, and documenting calibration information helps provide the correct data for Precision Claims. Farmers can use a free FMH Calibration Report Form to document calibration information.
