    What is the approach and schedule for MIDAS to allow farmers to directly report acreage to the FSA? Will MIDAS allow farmers to electronically download their CLU data so they can use the CLU field identification in their precision ag technology? What is the reconciliation process within MIDAS to reconcile differences in acreage as calculated by GPS measurement versus GIS measurement?

      Who will be training the farmers on how to sign-up for programs on the WEB? It appears that USDA is moving to doing all things on the internet. Given the complexity of USDA forms and regulations, and the average age of the farmers in our county is about 60, are you expecting an awful lot if they are to sign up by themselves. What is the plan for DCP sign-up and acreage reporting on the WEB?
