FMH uses precision ag data from producers for more accurate coverage, and producers can also use the same data to certify acres at the FSA office for acreage reporting.
How Do Precision Solutions Simplify Acreage Reporting?
Using Precision Solutions helps simplify acreage reporting for producers in a number of ways including:
- Connections: Streamlines crop insurance reporting with direct FMS system connections
- Accuracy: Accurate data insures what’s in the ground, potentially reducing premium and increasing APH over time
- Reports: Agent-generated reports speed up FSA certification process
Reporting FSA Acres
Acres reported for insurance don’t have to match acres on file with the FSA. While this has been a long-standing business practice, precision ag data is making it much easier for agents, adjusters, and producers to verify and report acreage.
There are no FSA or RMA regulations requiring acres to match. FMH agents can generate an FSA Summary Report for the farmer to bring to their FSA office, so farmers can use their accurate precision data for FSA reports, as well.
Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the FSA has waived late-filing procedures for 30 days after the Acreage Reporting Date (ARD). Read this FSA notice for other service changes.
Using FMS Data for Reporting
FMH accepts accurate data from any color of equipment and a variety of FMS, including its FMH + FieldView connection that allows policyholders the ability to report their planting data easily through the FMH Policyholder Center.
