Crop Insurance Reporting: Verifying Harvested Production using SMS
In a previous blog we shared how SMS can be used to assist with crop insurance reporting, in particular acreage reporting. As harvest season shifts into high gear we revisit how these same tools can be used for verifying harvested production, see pages 250 – 252 for RMA guidelines.
Periodically during the harvest season I make sure to import our farm's yield monitor data into SMS. This not only insures that the data is being recorded correctly, but it also provides an opportunity to review our farm's crop yield.
In the event of production loss, I can simply access current harvest information in SMS and provide verification of loss for our crop insurance agent. This helps expedite the claim process and ensures that I’m being accurately compensated for any harvest loss.
Please see the video below for more detail on using SMS software for crop insurance reporting.
