SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — The Climate Corp., a division of Monsanto Company, announced data connectivity agreements with several agronomic and retailer software systems as well as the John Deere Operations Center. This will enable farmers and their trusted advisors to quickly and easily transfer certain field data between these systems and Climate FieldView, where farmers can visualize their farm data and gain customized, field-level insights to help them make operational decisions with confidence.
These agreements connect Climate FieldView to the farm management platforms of more than 80% of the top retailers across the Corn Belt and the largest U.S. agricultural equipment provider. Improved data connectivity helps farmers maximize the value of their field data, while giving them full control over how their data is used and shared.
“Traditionally, data management has been difficult for farmers, because the tools for data collection, storage and analysis have been disconnected,” said Doug Sauder, senior director of product for The Climate Corp. “We’re solving that problem by making data connectivity seamless. In just minutes, farmers can connect other software systems to Climate FieldView to gain a more complete understanding of their fields, simplify data sharing with their trusted advisors and make informed decisions for their operations.”
Through these new agreements, farmers will be able to transfer data such as field boundaries, field maps, management zones, variable rate seeding prescriptions, planting and harvest data and soil test results into their Climate FieldView accounts.
Climate’s most recent agreement with John Deere will enable farmers to transfer current and historical field data between the John Deere Operations Center and Climate FieldView. This new data connectivity agreement is in addition to the agreement Deere and Climate entered into in November 2015, which represents the first and only near real-time in-cab wireless connection by a third party to Deere’s equipment.
Connectivity agreements between Climate and agronomic software and equipment platforms include: AgIntegrated OnSite, Agrian, SSI Agvance Mapping, FS Advanced Information Services, MapShots AgStudio, John Deere Operations Center and SST Summit. The agreements will enable a farmer’s data to easily flow between his or her Climate FieldView account and many farm management platforms used by the following top retailers:
Crop Production Services
South Dakota Wheat Growers
Southern States Cooperative
Winfield Solutions, LLC
In addition, farmers can wirelessly map their field data into their Climate FieldView account using the new Climate FieldView Drive, a device that easily transfers field data from a farmer’s equipment into their Climate FieldView account. Farmers will have similar functionality with Precision Planting’s 20/20 monitors enabling them to use either device to collect, store and view field map data in real-time when used with Climate FieldView Plus software.
The integrated Climate FieldView digital agronomic platform also includes Climate FieldView Pro, a tool that provides customized, field-level agronomic insights powered by data science, and Climate FieldView Prime, a tool that provides field-level weather, notifications and scouting.
