The Greenbook Group, provider of chemical plant protection data to the agriculture industry, has entered into a premium data licensing partnership with precision agriculture software manufacturer SST Software. Under the agreement, Greenbook will license its entire chemical input product database to SST Software for integration across the SST Summit software suite.
Additionally, The Greenbook Group announced that it will be the sole chemical crop protection data provider for the AgX Platform, an emerging industry data communication standard originated by SST Software. The AgX Platform is currently being implemented by a number of industry stakeholders including prominent farm machinery manufacturers, precision agriculture software providers, and chemical companies.
“We at the Greenbook Group are so pleased to have been selected as the recognized standard in chemical product data as evidenced by our inclusion in the AgX Platform developed by SST Software,” said AnnMarie Wills, General Manager of The Greenbook Group.
As crop producers continue to seek out additional ways to leverage field-specific data collection and analysis to maximize profits, The Greenbook Group and SST Software partnership will seek to fill that growing need. “By partnering with Greenbook we are able to offer our customers more efficient access to the product label information they need in the ever-increasing regulatory environment in which they operate,” says David Waits, SST Software President/CEO.
The Greenbook chemical data set will be implemented into SST’s Summit precision agriculture software suite, which impacts over 26 million acres in North America. According to Ms. Wills, industry acceptance of the Greenbook data architecture was inevitable. “The integration of Greenbook data and structure with the SST suite of products and now the industry standard AgX Platform is a perfect match and natural progression for our product,” she said.
