The Climate Corp. Expands Global Digital Agriculture Platform into Europe

The Climate Corp., a subsidiary of Monsanto Co., has announced at Agritechnica, the world’s leading trade fair for agricultural machinery, the pre-commercial launch of the Climate FieldView digital agriculture platform into regions of Europe for the 2018 growing season. Through the company’s innovative, analytics-based digital tools, farmers in these European regions will be able to get all their data into one, connected platform, uncover valuable field insights and maximize productivity to get the most out of every acre.

“Transformative digital technologies are helping more farmers around the world gain a deeper understanding of their fields through easy-to-use tools that are helping enhance their operations through the power of data,” said Mike Stern, chief executive officer for The Climate Corporation. “Farmers around the world are experiencing the value of the Climate FieldView platform on millions of acres, and soon farmers in Europe will have the opportunity to bring their field data to life. Farmers will be able to seamlessly collect data, quickly visualize it, and gain personalized insights to optimize agronomic practices and make critical management decisions that impact sustainable crop production.”

Over the past year, the Climate FieldView platform conducted robust testing efforts across farms in Germany, France, and Ukraine. For the upcoming season, more farmers in these countries will be able to experience data collection and visualization in the cab of their equipment, along with additional tools to analyze and evaluate crop performance and manage variability through customized seeding and fertility prescriptions.

“Climate FieldView is an extremely user-friendly, intuitive tool,” said Andreas Roehrl, a farmer from Bavaria who participated in beta testing the Climate FieldView platform this season. “From my point of view, it is the first tool that has the potential to help me finally get all my data in one place and easily analyze all the available information to start planning ahead and ensure I’m making the best decisions for the success of my operation. I’m excited to accompany this coming year’s growing season and harvest with Climate FieldView, and I hope the positive projections on my business can be implemented in practice and will bring desired results.”

Climate FieldView Platform Offering in Europe

Data Connectivity – Farmers can collect, store and visualize their field data in one easy-to-use digital platform through the Climate FieldView Drive, a device that easily streams field data directly into a farmer’s Climate FieldView account. FieldView Drive is compatible with many equipment types across Europe, including planters, sprayers and combines, helping farmers easily collect field data for the agronomic inputs they manage throughout the season. Recently, The Climate Corporation announced a global data connectivity agreement with AGCO, providing more farmers even greater options to connect their equipment to the Climate FieldView platform. In addition to the FieldView Drive and AGCO connectivity, farmers will be able to connect their field data to their Climate FieldView account through Precision Planting LLC’s monitors, cloud-to-cloud connection with other agricultural software systems such as the John Deere Operations Center, and through manual file upload. Available in Spring 2018.

Yield Analysis Tools – With Climate’s seed performance and analysis tools, farmers can see what worked and what didn’t at the field level or by field region, and apply those insights to better understand field variability by quickly and easily comparing digital field maps side-by-side. Available in Spring 2018.

Seeding and Fertility Scripting – Farmers can manage their inputs to optimize yield in every part of their field with manual variable rate seed and fertility scripting tools. Through Climate’s manual seed scripting tools, farmers can easily create detailed planting plans for their fields to build a hybrid specific prescription tailored to their unique goals, saving time and improving productivity. Additionally, Climate offers a manual fertility scripting tool, enabling farmers the ability to optimize their inputs with a customized management plan for nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and lime tailored to their unique goals. Available in Spring 2018.

Advanced Field Health Imagery – Through frequent and consistent, high-quality satellite imagery, farmers can instantly visualize and analyze crop performance, helping them identify issues early, prioritize scouting and take action early to protect yield. Climate’s proprietary imagery process provides consistent imagery quality and frequency by using high-resolution imagery with vegetative data from multiple images, in addition to advanced cloud identification. Farmers can also drop geo-located scouting pins on field health images and navigate back to those spots for a closer look, or share with agronomic partners. Available in Fall 2018.
