The deadline to submit your S.T.A.R. Field Forms for Crop Year 2020 has been extended to Friday, February 5th, 2021!
S.T.A.R. collaborates with Precision Conservation Management (PCM) to allow farmers and landowners to enter S.T.A.R. data on-line and save it in the PCM system. Together, we hope to grow and support our respective programs and expand to meet future needs of farmers and farm businesses in our communities.
If you need help or guidance, contact your local S.T.A.R. licensed county soil & water conservation district - see this link. Contact S.T.A.R. if your county is not licensed.
More than 70+ Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) in counties across Illinois support S.T.A.R. and can assist with the program.
Download the S.T.A.R. Field Form at the bottom of this page and complete the form for each field you wish to submit, saving each with a different name. Email or mail those to your local county soil and water conservation district using information on the CONTACT page. If your county is not a S.T.A.R. Licensee, send your forms to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail them to Champaign County SWCD.
You can also visit your local SWCD to complete a field form. Please use the directory below to identify your local SWCD for support.
If you are outside Illinois, please contact email@example.com and we will put you in touch with someone to find more information about the process in your state. If your state is not participating, you are welcome to with the process described herein.
If you're a farmer/user of S.T.A.R. through the PCM Portal, or just getting started with it, watch the following video for a step by step guide.
