Online Services

For your convenience we have provided several services online. If you are new to the site and would like to obtain a USDA Service Center Customer ID and password, please Register now. Several online services do not require an ID and password.

USDA eAuthentication is the system used by USDA agencies to enable customers to obtain accounts that will allow them to access USDA Web applications and services via the Internet. This includes things such as submitting forms electronically, completing surveys online, and checking the status of your USDA accounts.

Please note that USDA will only accept eAuthentication Accounts from individuals.

Currently USDA eAuthentication does not have the mechanism to issue accounts to businesses, corporations or other entities.

To apply for a USDA eAuthentication Account, please visit the Create An Account Page.

FSAfarm+

With FSAfarm+, producers will have web access to view their FSA data such as the common land unit data, related farm data, and other producer information. This data will be available in real time and at no cost to the producer. This functionality allows operators and owners to view, export and print farm records data, including maps, from their own home through a public facing web portal. Direct access will permit the operators and owners to electronically share their data, which could include maps, with a crop insurance agent, from their own personal computer.


HayNet and Grazing Net

The Farm Service Agency's electronic Hay and Grazing Net Ad Service (eHayNet) is an Internet-based service allowing farmers and ranchers to share 'Need Hay' ads and 'Have Hay' ads online. Farmers also can use another feature to post advertisements for grazing land, specifically ads announcing the availability of grazing land or ads requesting a need for land to graze.


TIP Net

FSA has developed this website to provide a tool to connect retired or retiring land owners or operators with beginning or socially disadvantaged farmers or ranchers who are interested in the Transition Incentives Program (TIP).


FSA System Development Life Cycle (SDLC)

The SDLC defined here is the system development methodology of the Farm Service Agency (FSA). It is based on an iterative system engineering process that describes who does what, when, and how in a system development and deployment project. It has demonstrated the ability to meet the departmental framework in terms of phases, deliverables, etc. defined in the USDA SDLC.
