Hayes and Hitchcock County wheat farmers invited to join acreage reporting pilot project
Wheat producers in 16 Nebraska counties, including Hayes and Hitchcock County, may be eligible for a pilot program to test their ability to use precision ag data for reporting acreage to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) agencies.
Nebraska USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) and USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) are looking for wheat producers to test the transfer of data collected by producers’ planting equipment as part of a streamlining initiative.
The data will be processed by an approved third-party provider and transmitted directly to FSA and RMA as part of the Acreage Crop Reporting Streamlining Initiative (ACRSI).
