MyAgData® is a cloud-based data system that simplifies acreage reporting for farmers, crop insurance agents and agricultural service providers. We use the data collected during normal farming operations, format it to meet the reporting requirements of crop insurance companies, match it to the CLUs required for USDA acreage and production reporting and produces reports by land or geography.
TurboTax streamlined the process of filing a tax return. Likewise, we’re streamlining the process to file acreage reports, saving farmers, insurance companies and the USDA time and money.
