WinField, Climate Corp Announce R7 Tool-FieldView Integration, Other Enhancements

Winfield US (Winfield United Suppliers) and The Climate Corporation (a division of Monsanto Co.) are further enhancing their collaboration by implementing a two-way, cross-navigation exchange between the R7 Tool, the Winfield US decision ag solution, and The Climate Corporation’s Climate FieldView platform.

“Our aim is to help foster better adoption of ag technology tools so retailers can then use those capabilities to help farmers make more profitable and agronomically sound decisions,” said Mike Vande Logt, chief operating officer, Winfield US. “Technology is changing rapidly, and retailers and farmers who don’t avail themselves of its many benefits may find themselves at risk of being left behind.”

The new enhancements are expected to roll out in two phases in time for 2017 crop season planning, and provide retailers with a more streamlined process to help them visualize and use data.

Phase 1, expected to launch in October, will help ag retailers make seed recommendations that best fit a field’s profile. This enhancement will be available to retail sales personnel through navigation from the Climate FieldView platform’s prescription tools to the R7 Tool, which accesses Answer Plot Program data.

Phase 2, expected to begin in March 2017, will help retailers address in-season issues, such as nitrogen management. It will provide navigation from the R7 Tool to the Climate FieldView platform and make it easy for retailers to access nitrogen monitoring, field health, and variable rate seeding prescription features.

“With these enhancements, the R7 Tool and the Climate FieldView platform can be used very easily in a synergistic way,” said Vande Logt. “For example, a retailer can call up a historic image and a prescription map from the R7 Tool, and pair that with the Climate FieldView platform’s nitrogen monitoring features to evaluate the past, present and future state of a field, then use that data to help the grower make the best decisions.”

“Easy data integration between the Climate FieldView platform and retailer software systems is an important step in enabling farmers and their trusted advisors to collectively make data-driven, decisions with confidence,” said Mike Stern, chief executive officer for The Climate Corporation. “We’re thrilled to have an advanced data connectivity partnership between the Climate FieldView platform and the R7 Tool so Winfield US retailers can easily navigate between the two platforms for a more collaborative experience with their Climate FieldView customers.”

The R7 Tool will also be enhanced in the coming months. Beginning October 1, the tool will be reengineered to be faster, more user-friendly and customizable, with a single platform accessible from PC, laptop or tablet. Enhancements include new functionality that enables retailers to create a multi-hybrid prescription for variable-rate seeding recommendations.

Retailers can learn more about these new capabilities by contacting their Winfield US agriculture technology specialist, their local Climate representative, or they can read more at answertech.com.
