DuPont, Raven Join Forces On Encirca Yield Data Transfer

DuPont Pioneer and Raven Industries today announced a collaboration to allow for the seamless flow of information generated through Pioneer Encirca services to Raven Viper4 and other compatible field computers by leveraging Raven’s Slingshot wireless connectivity solution. Encirca services are whole-farm decision services offered by Pioneer to help growers improve their productivity and profitability on every acre. Raven is a global leader of precision agriculture field equipment, including Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) products, field computers and application controls.

In July, Pioneer launched its Encirca Yield Nitrogen Management Service to help growers more efficiently manage one of their most important crop inputs.

“This new connectivity between Encirca services and Raven adds convenience for the grower and will further enable the precise application of nitrogen fertilizer,” said Steve Reno, DuPont Pioneer vice president, business director – U.S. and Canada. “As yield monitors run this fall, growers are already thinking about the 2015 growing season. They want to know how much nitrogen will be needed for top yields next year. Encirca Yield enabled with wireless data transfer makes that information instantly available and helps growers to be more efficient with input planning,” said Reno.

As part of this data exchange, growers can choose to have their Encirca services prescriptions wirelessly transferred directly to compatible Raven controllers to be accurately applied in their fields, as well as to automatically report what was applied for future analysis.

“We are excited about the new addition of Pioneer Encirca services to the list of decision agriculture and software solutions already compatible with Slingshot,” said Paul Welbig, Raven Industries general manager of its Austin Technology Center and Slingshot operations. “The open architecture of Slingshot easily enables great collaborators like Pioneer to provide their growers with technologically advanced solutions that help maximize yield.”

The Slingshot API, or Application Programming Interface, is an open and secure data connectivity platform that provides a simple way for software systems to connect with Raven controllers in the field utilizing wireless technology.

“This effort with Raven further advances our whole-farm, brand-neutral services strategy which, with the assistance of an Encirca certified services agent, works with growers to analyze and use their data to positively improve their bottom lines,” said Reno.
