Had a little fun putting together this visual bible verse of the day for our church. Hope you like!
 
Wednesday's Word: "Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others." Philippians 2:3-4

A final, fundamental question with this change is the impact it could have on producers across the country and the crop insurance system as a whole. It has been suggested that this should be an easy thing for RMA to implement, but the questions and issues raised above would seem to indicate that it is not at all straight forward, and could have important impacts back to the ratings system. In fact, this appears to be a very complicated change to some basic functions of crop insurance that would appear to require caution and care in its implementation. #cropinsurance  
Due to the central role that APH plays in maintaining the integrity of crop insurance, fundamental changes in its calculation raise significant questions about its impact.

While we have one already - technically - it's "just for fun", according to FAA rules. But others have begun to use for commercial uses already. FAA is really, really behind on this and needs to step up to the plate and allow this technology to be used for commercial use, ASAP.
 
What was a novelty just a few short months ago became commonplace seemingly overnight – the sight of UAVs taking flight over farmers’ fields and research plots. Do you plan to use one on your farm, depending upon the FAA rules?
The dizzying pace at which UAVs have come onto the scene has regulators scrambling to keep up, and that may spell delays in bringing the many benefits of the technology to the farm in a timely and economical manner.

Had a little fun with +Adobe Photoshop clipping masks on today's Friday Fun Ag Fact!
 
"To be or not to be, that is the question..." While you may have had to recite Prince Hamlet's famous line in HS English class, it really is a serious question when it comes to farming. 

Did you know how many farm operators reported farming as their primary occupation and source of family income in 2012? It may be less than you expect. #infographic   #funagfact

Great article to help out on your crop insurance questions about SCO - Supplemental Coverage Option.
 
What is the Supplemental Coverage Option (SCO) Endorsement? 
The Supplemental Coverage Option (SCO) is a new crop insurance option that provides additional coverage for a portion of your underlying crop insurance policy deductible. You must buy it as an endorsement to the Yield Protection, Revenue Protection, or Revenue Protection with the Harvest Price Exclusion policies. 

Are you ready to learn more? Then this FAQ on the SCO endorsement is for you!
We take a look at some of the frequently asked questions about the Supplemental Coverage Option (SCO) endorsement provided as a crop insurance opportunity in the 2014 Farm Bill.
