Farmers Edge, a leader in digital agriculture, today announced a partnership with Premier Crop Insurance, an insurance agency that operates in 10 states across the Midwest and Southeast providing insurance services for growers specializing in broadacre crops such as corn, cotton, rice, soybeans, and wheat. This strategic alliance enables the insurance agency to provide services using the risk management platform FarmCommand, along with digital tools to simplify claims, automate acreage reporting, and match growers with the right mitigation plan.
Through this collaborative approach, Premier Crop Insurance gains the opportunity to scale its business model with a turn-key farm data management solution designed to enhance digital connectivity with growers. For growers who wish to share their data with their Premier agent, the platform provides visibility into the current and predicted stages of crops, disease, and pests; severe weather forecasting; and crop health change detection on a field-by-field or zone-by-zone basis.
This time-saving technology enables automatic claim prediction, notification of claims, and claim estimation. Additionally, the platform includes on-farm infrastructure that eliminates the need for manual data entry and ensures accurate, unbiased data sets for improved planted acre verification and production reporting.
“Working with Farmers Edge gives us a simple solution to establish season-long engagement with our growers and make it easy for them to share data with us — accurately, timely, and efficiently — so we can extract value from that data and enhance our business model to provide tailored products and support,” said Scott Walker, president of Premier Crop Insurance.
