NOTICE March 4, 2019 - PLEASE NOTE - We have had some growers find that they cannot submit fields but that the fields remain on their dashboard as status "drafted". The myfields team is currently trying to rectify the issue. They had made some coding changes that these have adversely affected our field applications. At this time, continue to enter your fields and when they correct the problem. Please call KCIA if you need further assistance.
Remember: Do not use Internet Explorer to make field applications. Update your browser to Chrome or Firefox. Using Internet Explorer will cause the program to malfunction. Both Chrome and Firefox are available for free download. Don't waste your time, call KCIA if you experience problems.

Basic Techniques Videos: 3 Simple Steps to begin electronic submission of field applications:
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.
