For Rural Community Insurance Services (RCIS) who use Climate FieldView, a new feature allows them to access, analyze, manage and now share their planting and harvesting data with an agent – at no additional cost.
“Whether it’s increased profitability, simplified tasks, time savings or peace of mind, creating value for farmers is our primary goal,” says Brandon Rinkenberger, director of customer base for Climate LLC and Digital Farming at Bayer. “If we have the opportunity to expand our capabilities, give farmers more options and make their lives easier with digital tools, we will work to make that happen.”
Initiated by the farmer, the secure connection gives policyholders the ability to digitally report acres and production data through their FieldView account, simplifying processes. For the 2019 farming season, Farmers Mutual Hail Insurance Company of Iowa began offering similar capabilities through the platform. NAU Country Insurance followed in 2020.
“The addition of FieldView’s connection provides significant value to our policyholders in managing their agricultural production information and reducing its complexities,” said Nick Luett, RCIS Mapping Product Manager.
RCIS has a network of approximately 3,600 agents and operates in all 50 states. It provides risk management for more than 160 crops on more than 125 million acres.
Farmers should contact their RCIS crop insurance agent if they are interested in this new capability. They can also visit climate.com for more information.
