ARS was the first crop insurance agency in the area to report acres by mapping, which was considered cutting-edge at the time. Since then, we have moved in the direction of precision farming. Our deep understanding of precision technology and superior relationships with crop insurance companies, precision technology reps and equipment dealerships allow us to help new and existing customers set up this technology to not only be used for crop insurance, but for other farm management decisions, as well.
