SANTA ANA, Calif. – Iteris has announced the addition of new harvest timing and storage analytics capabilities to its digital farming mobile app, ClearAg(R) Mobile.
Agribusinesses and growers alike can quickly implement the new tools for the upcoming harvest season through a subscription to ClearAg Mobile.
ClearAg Mobile’s patented harvest advisory tools help growers to better understand up-to-the-minute environmental impacts of weather, water and soil on crop growth and health, and to plan harvest operations accordingly. With the new harvest advisory tools, growers can identify the best windows for harvesting row crops based on grain moisture levels as well as determine when weather conditions are ideal for crop dry down and storage.
“Crop producers, custom harvesters and ag consultants are looking to improve their profits even near the end of the season with ClearAg Mobile’s new harvest advisory tools to optimize harvest field operations, while minimizing grain dry-down expense,” said Iteris’ Senior Vice President of Performance Analytics, Tom Blair. “ClearAg’s patented technology helps them easily calculate the cost tradeoffs between artificial drying when harvesting early in the season versus maximizing grain quality and harvest equipment efficiency when crops are more near their optimum grain storage moisture levels. ClearAg tools also help users reduce combine and grain hauling equipment fuel costs by indicating when forecasted weather and field soil conditions are at optimal levels for highest efficiency and reduced labor expense.”
ClearAg is a leading digital farming platform that delivers weather, water, soil and crop health advisory services to growers, researchers and other agribusinesses who need the most accurate, location-based information available on a worldwide basis.
