Farm operations that use precision ag equipment and technology can benefit from Precision Crop Insurance Solutions. Collecting the data needed for crop insurance reporting and claims requires precision ag equipment and software that can manage and send the data.

FMH can process data from any color of equipment, most farm management softwares, and in a variety of ways to make using precision data an option for many farmers.
 
FMH can accept data from most Farm Management Software including (but not limited to):

  • John Deere Operations Center / MyJohnDeere.com
  • Apex from John Deere
  • AgLeader SMS
  • Precision Planting / Field View

Data can be transferred in any of the following ways:

  • Wireless Data Transfer (e.g., JD Link > John Deere Operations Center > FMH)
  • USB or Memory Card
  • Other (i.e., Bluetooth - e.g., JD MDT device)

Automated Crop Reporting (ACR) uses your precision farming equipment along with your farm management software to capture and submit acreage and production data to your FMH crop insurance agent. This helps streamline the process of communicating required field information for government agencies and saves time while simplifying crop insurance reporting.

If you are already capturing precision data, you can transfer your field data directly to your FMH crop insurance agent. Your agent will verify the information for crop insurance purposes and provide you with reports for acreage certification after planting and production verification after harvest.

Federal guidelines for crop insurance allow the use of precision farming technology for crop reporting records. ACR will help streamline your government reporting requirements by submitting information electronically rather than submitting manual records, such as bin measurements and scale tickets.
