AgCountry Farm Credit Services will be involved with a United States Department of Agriculture pilot project this season that aims to make acreage reporting easier for farmers, according to a news release from AgCountry.

 

The Acreage Crop Reporting Streamlining Initiative is a joint effort between the Farm Service Agency, the Risk Management Agency and other USDA agencies. Planning and development began in 2010.

According to USDA, “the vision of the ACRSI is to have a common framework for producer commodity reporting in support of USDA programs.”  

Under the program, customers will report their crop acres to their insurance specialist, according to the release by AgCountry. A few days later, they can go into the FSA office and an agent will pull up their reported acres on the FSA system. The customer then verifies that the acres are correct, fills in any additional information as needed and signs their FSA acreage report.
