Farm Dog, the leading pest and disease management platform for growers and agronomists, has completed the second stage of its integration with John Deere Operations Center. This milestone helps streamline growers’ adoption of integrated pest management (IPM) for their fields, which has been shown to drive down input costs, increase yields, and promote environmental sustainability.
According to Joe Braml, Integrated Solutions Specialist at Tractor Central in Wisconsin, “Farm Dog integration into the John Deere Operations Center will make it much easier to see how the things I take note of during the growing season affect the yield in the end.”
The strengthened integration fully synchronizes data from users’ Farm Dog and MyJohnDeere accounts, enabling them to view and analyze in-field scouting observations together with additional crop and field information in both the Farm Dog platform and Operations Center. Specifically, growers and agronomists can now:
- Import field boundaries, client, and crop information from John Deere Operations Center to Farm Dog for easy onboarding;
- Collect in-field scouting observations, access treatment efficacy information, view regional pressure maps, and receive advanced analytics within the Farm Dog platform; and
- Automatically export scouting observations and insights, including findings, geo-markers, and photographs, from Farm Dog into John Deere Operations Center.
“Farm Dog is committed to providing growers and their agronomists the best precision agriculture tools possible to implement IPM in their fields,” said Liron Brish, CEO of Farm Dog. “Our users were clear in their desire for a stronger integration with John Deere, and we are excited to roll out these new features for them.”
