Cutting-Edge Acreage Reporting Tools Will Help South Central FS Make Farmers Lives Easier

[March 7, 2018, Effingham, Illinois] Independent Data Management (IDM) is pleased to announce that it is partnering with South Central FS to roll out electronic acreage reporting with MyAgData just in time for the 2018 Spring planting season.

“Our team really likes how easy the MyAgData app is to use, and we’re looking forward to how smooth it’s going to make reporting acreage to insurance agents and FSA offices,” said Joe Meinhart, CEO of South Central FS.

MyAgData® is a cloud-based data system that simplifies acreage reporting for farmers, crop insurance agents and ag service providers. It uses the data collected during normal farming operations, formats it to meet the reporting requirements of crop insurance companies, matches it to the CLUs required for USDA acreage and production reporting and produces reports by land or geography.

South Central FS is a member of the FS System, a cooperative organization with locally owned FS Member Companies throughout Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin and Ontario, Canada. In addition to precision farming assistance, they provide their customers with propane, fuels, lubricants, plant nutrients, crop protection products, seed and grain storage/handling systems.

“Using MyAgData will help us fulfill one of our core values: make our local farmers lives easier,” said Meinhart.

“We are thrilled to partner with one of the nation’s leading grower cooperatives,” added Deb Casurella, CEO of IDM. “South Central is always looking for ways to help growers and we are happy they chose us to help them make acreage reporting easier.”
