System Status Updates

April 5, 2017 - You may need to update your browser.  Programmers are making changes to myfields that will enhance usability on mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets.  This may cause some compatibility issues with older browsers on desktop computers and if you are currently using Internet Explorer you may need to update your browser to Chrome.  Firefox seems to function okay.  Mac systems seem to also work with the new changes.  If you are having issues, don't hesitate to call us.  As refinements are made to enhance myfields, there may from time to  time be user issues that spring up and we will address these as soon a possible.  Older operating such as Vista may run into compatibility.  An older OS such as Vista should be replaced with a newer OS anyway, as Microsoft has ceased to provide security updates and no longer supports Vista.

Wendy is working on new instructional videos that will reflect these changes.

 

Instructionals

As with all things, we will likely experience some unforeseen or unexpected glitches, nor is the system as polished as it will be as time progresses.  Please retain your planting records as a fail-safe option for your field inspector should the need arise.  The deadline for field applications is March 15.

As we transition to the new electronic format for submitting fields for certification, we will use this page to bring to you helpful information.  If at any time you have a question or concern, feel free to email Steve Schuler at sfskcia@kansas.net, or call our office 785-532-6118 M-F 8-12, 1-5.

myfields is being developed as an Extension-based multi-crop management tool, click here for some background on myfields.info .

 

FAQs: As issues are brought to our attention, we will address them here.  If you are having difficulty with the program, checking here may help.

Videos:  3 Simple Steps to begin electronic submission of field applications: The links under Videos will all take you to www.myfields.info/help where the tutorials are posted.  Just scroll to the one you wish to view.

Step 1.  Setting up a free myfields account and applying for certification privileges (while anyone can set up a myfields account, only active KCIA members will be permitted to apply for permission to submit fields to KCIA)

Step 2.  Adding a field to your myfields account (if you desire, you can add all of your fields to your account to manage them on myfields.  KCIA only has access to the actual field application submitted information and does not have access to your account or other field information.)

Step 3.  Submitting a field for certification.  After you have established your myfields account and requested and received approval from KCIA to submit fields, it will be possible to complete application for certification for the field of your choosing.

Viewing  your certified applications.  View this video for an understanding of how to check the status of fields submitted for certification, from submittal through inspection and final approval.
