How can you make your crop insurance experiences easier this fall? Have you considered using your precision grain harvest data to speed up the process?

Adam Krultz, Marketing Field Representative from Rain and Hail L.L.C. says “Per the Risk Management Agency’s (RMA) Loss Adjustment Manual (LAM), producers who utilized their precision farming planting monitor data to report acreage can use their precision farming harvest data for production reporting. The producers must calibrate their yield monitors to manufacture specifications and be able to provide a calibration report and documentation. By utilizing this data for crop insurance purposes we are able to streamline acreage reporting, work claims accurately and quickly based on the GPS data, and make the agent and producer more efficient at both acreage reporting and production reporting time.”
Since SMS Software has the ability to import data form most precision ag displays on the market today, you can use your precision harvest data to streamline your production reporting, regardless of the color of your equipment! Just import your data into SMS and use the Insurance Export Tool to upload the information to your insurance provider. Check out the video below to learn how to import your data!
