MyAgData Launched To Connect Precision Ag Data With Crop Reporting Requirements

MyAgData

A new cloud-based online service designed to bridge the gap between popular farm management software and reporting requirements for crop insurance, USDA and other government entities has been introduced by Independent Data Management, LLC. The service, MyAgData, simplifies the time-consuming, labor intensive process of identifying Common Land Unit (CLU) information – tracts of farmland defined by the government – and matching it to corresponding planting and harvest data collected by precision farming software systems. The service is now available for the 2013 crop season.

Designed for crop insurance agents, crop advisors and agronomists working in conjunction with their grower clients, MyAgData allows users to upload field data from their software – including crops, planting dates, field borders, non-plant areas and more. The system then automatically matches the field data from the grower’s software with MyAgData’s CLU database, layering required information over each field.

“This is a true breakthrough for anyone dealing with crop insurance,” said Deb Casurella, President of Independent Data Management, LLC. “With MyAgData, what used to be a painstakingly slow and methodical process of matching government identified common land units with fields as they are identified via precision farming GPS systems can now be accomplished in just a couple minutes.”

The timing of the launch coincides with significant changes to government farm reporting requirements designed to eliminate paperwork and provide more accurate documentation of farm activities. Because MyAgData is an independent entity, it is capable of formatting field data from any major precision farming/farm management software system for use in major crop insurance systems as well as FSA and other government and independent reporting entities, eliminating potentially redundant efforts by separate crop insurers to develop separate systems for each precision farming software system.

“Government reporting requirements are changing quickly. Crop insurers are expected to file most information electronically going forward. This is the most efficient way for them to collect and submit this information. And, because it will be updated based as reporting requirements change, MyAgData will eliminate headaches for crop insurers and their clients,” said Casurella.
