Proprietary data collected from individual farms is valuable and should remain the property of the farmer.”

“As innovation and technology using this data expands to provide farmers new management tools, protecting the privacy of this data is paramount.”

“Farm Bureau will continue to work to ensure that a farmer’s data, whether related to seed or other crop inputs, the production system used and both business and personal information, is extended the highest degree of protection.”

“The farmer and rancher delegates attending our annual convention this year felt so strongly about these matters that they gave clear direction and approved strong policy resolutions on the so-called big-data issue as it relates to data privacy, ownership and use in agricultural production.”

“We will continue to advocate for farmers whenever this issue is raised, and we will provide thought leadership on production-related data privacy issues.”
