[December 10, 2014]  Logan County FSA is looking for volunteers within our county to assist in a USDA Pilot Program for reporting data (primarily acreage reporting) to our office. Producers who take part in the pilot program would provide acreage report data, which would be shared with the FSA County Office and crop insurance agents. Producers who utilize Precision Ag are preferred, but not required.

During phase 1 of the project we are looking for 15-20 Logan County producers who utilize precision ag when measuring planted acres for the purpose of reporting acreage, including GPS measurements. This would include all 2015 spring planted commodities. The pilot phase would end on or around July 1st to allow for any unforeseen outcomes that could prevent the producer from timely reporting acres to the FSA office by the July 15th deadline.

The producers who volunteer should have all 2015 farm changes completed prior to the start of the pilot program and also have signature authority for all producers on a farm. The producer should also have high speed internet access to ensure the infrastructure can handle data exchanges.

If you are interested in participating please contact the FSA office at 217-735-5508 or email john.peters@il.usda.gov .

On December 11th, at 10:30am there will be an informational meeting held in Bloomington, IL regarding this pilot program, at which time you would meet with staff from the National FSA office to get further information. If you could possibly attend please let the office know as soon as possible to work out the details. If you are not able to attend this meeting you may still participate and will receive the information at a later date.
