John Deere announces new automated crop reporting
John Deere is improving how
producers report field data for crop insurance purposes. Their new Automated
Crop Reporting process provides a simpler, more accurate way to track field
data for a producer’s most time-consuming task: government reporting.
The new Automated Crop
Reporting process benefits producers by maximizing their precision farming
technology investment, reducing the amount of time to certify acres and
generating more accurate acreage and production reports. Combined, these
benefits return much-needed time and more accurate field data to producers,
allowing them to focus on growing their farm operation.
“John Deere is integrating
precision farming system technology with our crop insurance processing software
to deliver more efficient governmental farm program reporting solutions to
producer,” says Don Preusser, President of John Deere Insurance Company.
Automated Crop Reporting now
adds more value to current GPS field documentation systems, such as GreenStar,
along with farm mapping software, like Apex, and is compatible with other
systems to allow even more producers the opportunity to benefit from this new
How Automated Crop Reporting
Once the GreenStar system is
set up, the producer can use it to document planting and harvest activity.
The producer uploads plant
and harvest data from GreenStar to Apex by using a data card.
Once uploaded, the producer
uses GSDNet – an Internet gateway that transfers information directly to the
John Deere crop insurance agent.
The John Deere crop
insurance agent prepares acreage and production reports for the producer’s
review and electronic signature. The agent also can provide map-based reports
that can reduce time and effort required to certify acres with the Farm Service
