Online service eases crop reporting requirements
A new cloud-based online service designed to bridge the gap between popular farm management software and reporting requirements for crop insurance, USDA and other government entities has been introduced by Independent Data Management, LLC. The service, MyAgData, simplifies the time-consuming, labor intensive process of identifying Common Land Unit (CLU) information - tracts of farmland defined by the government - and matching it to corresponding planting and harvest data collected by precision farming software systems. The service is now available for the 2013 crop season.
Designed for crop insurance agents, crop advisors and agronomists working in conjunction with their grower clients, MyAgData allows users to upload field data from their software - including crops, planting dates, field borders, non-plant areas and more. The system then automatically matches the field data from the grower's software with MyAgData's CLU database, layering required information over each field.
The timing of the launch coincides with significant changes to government farm reporting requirements designed to eliminate paperwork and provide more accurate documentation of farm activities. Because MyAgData is an independent entity, it is capable of formatting field data from any major precision farming/farm management software system for use in major crop insurance systems as well as FSA and other government and independent reporting entities, eliminating potentially redundant efforts by separate crop insurers to develop separate systems for each precision farming software system.
"Government reporting requirements are changing quickly. Crop insurers are expected to file most information electronically going forward. This is the most efficient way for them to collect and submit this information. And, because it will be updated based as reporting requirements change, MyAgData will eliminate headaches for crop insurers and their clients," said Casurella.

Injectable approved for BRD control
Cattle producers and veterinarians now have a new option for control of Bovine Respiratory Disease in beef and non-lactating dairy cattle at high risk of developing BRD. Baytril 100 (enrofloxacin) Injectable, manufactured by Bayer HealthCare LLC, Animal Health Division, has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for control of all four major BRD pathogens.
With the latest approval from FDA, Baytril 100 is the first and only fluoroquinolone approved for treatment of BRD and control of BRD in high-risk cattle, providing flexibility in treatment protocols. Cattle producers and veterinarians now can rely on Baytril 100 for the treatment of BRD associated with Mannheimia haemolytica, Pasteurella multocida, Histophilus somni and Mycoplasma bovis in beef and non lactating dairy cattle; and, for the control of BRD in beef and non-lactating dairy heifers less than 20 months of age at high risk of developing BRD associated with M. haemolytica, P. multocida, H. somni and M. bovis.
In the lab, Baytril 100 kills 97 percent of the key BRD-causing bacteria in one to two hours in vitro. In a clinical field study, Baytril 100 demonstrated statistically significant control of BRD in high-risk cattle in a 14-day study.
