Please pay attention to each item/unit on your acre reports! The Insured is responsible for reporting ALL acres planted in the county which they have a share in for each crop listed on the policy. We see most issues arise when there has been added land to the farming operation or forgetting to report double cropped acres. If you have added land, please let our office know so that we can set up a new unit for you on your acre report. We will need to know the legal and crop-share on any added land.
It is also very important that acres reported on an acre report accurately reflect what you turn in at FSA. It is beneficial to our office to get a copy of your 578 from FSA to make sure that all info reported matches up accurately. This will help us process any future claims quickly and efficiently. We know that the paperwork that goes into farming is not on the top of anyone’s list, but we are here to help you! Feel free to stop by and let us help you get your acre reporting forms filled out.
As you may know, Patty Stude, does the mapping for all of our insureds’ farms at the office. What this means is she takes the planted acres from your acre reports and specifically maps them onto a specialized mapping program we have. Many of you have received phone calls from Patty so that she can get the specifics on where your acres are planted. This helps her get precise acres and also helps our adjusters at claim time to find your fields. These maps are highly detailed and we would love to share them with you! Call our office if you would be interested in getting a copy of your personalized farm map.
