Iteris Inc. announced the general availability of ClearAg, a decision support application for precision farming.
The new ClearAg features, available internationally, are Crop Health Advisory Services that assist in defining, defending, and clarifying what is happening in farm fields. Crop Health Advisory Services feature new endpoints around planting and harvest timing, pest and disease emergence, crop nutrition, crop canopy conditions, and irrigation.
Agribusinesses, crop consultants, and growers can access the ClearAg crop health and decision support product suite through the ClearAg web application or through a programmatic data service via APIs that readily integrate with third-party agriculture software applications.
"With the production release of our ClearAg APIs and ClearAg App, we look forward to equipping the agriculture industry with the highest quality, field-level weather, water, global soil and crop health information for effective farm operations," said Tom Blair, senior vice president of Iteris' Performance Analytics Division. "Following positive and constructive feedback from our ClearAg beta program, general availability of our ClearAg App and ClearAg APIs enable agribusinesses and growers to understand what is going on in their fields at any given moment. Whether they are in the field or in the office, whether they use the ClearAg App, or their own App empowered by ClearAg APIs, we are committed to empowering our customers with the best information so they can make better, faster, and more informed decisions from seed selection to planting and harvest timing."
The new ClearAg precision farming services follow previous product launches of ClearAg Select field-level precision weather and ClearAg Prime global soil application services. Together, ClearAg decision support products optimize crop production, maximize farm management resources, increase crop yield, and improve field operations.
