The Climate Corporation, a subsidiary of Monsanto Company, announced a data connectivity agreement with AGCO, providing farmers around the globe more options to connect their equipment to The Climate Corporation’s industry-leading Climate FieldView digital agriculture platform.
“The Climate FieldView platform continues to lead the industry with the broadest equipment connectivity across many different equipment types, makes and models so farmers can experience the value of powerful, data-driven digital tools to get the most from every acre.” said Mike Stern, chief executive officer for The Climate Corporation. “Through this new agreement with AGCO, more farmers around the world will be able to seamlessly get all their data in one place and maximize the value of that data with the Climate FieldView platform’s advanced analytics-based insights to make management decisions for their operations with confidence.”
The agreement will provide farmers three ways to connect to the Climate FieldView platform:
- Enables real-time data connectivity between the AGCO Connectivity Module (ACM), the company’s newest in-cab wireless technology, and farmers’ Climate FieldView accounts.
- Expands compatibility across all lines of AGCO equipment for The Climate Corporation’s Climate FieldView TM Drive device, which streams field data directly into the Climate FieldView platform to help farmers harness their data to uncover valuable insights, optimize yield and maximize profit.
- Continues to enable Climate FieldView data connectivity with Precision Planting’s 20/20 monitors.
This agreement also paves the way for cloud-to-cloud data transfer that would give farmers the ability to easily send data, such as a seeding prescription, from their Climate FieldView account to AGCO for execution on AGCO equipment.
As The Climate Corporation continues to expand its data connectivity to help more farmers access advanced agronomic insights, additional new data layers will feed the company’s robust R&D engine, ultimately enabling the development of valuable new features for farmers in the Climate FieldView platform. In August 2017, the company announced the acceleration of R&D advancements through the company’s robust innovation pipeline, along with new product features and enhancements to help farmers manage their field variability more precisely than ever before.
Launched in 2015, The Climate Corporation’s Climate FieldView platform is on more than 120 million acres with more than 100,000 users across the United States, Canada and Brazil, and has quickly become the most broadly connected platform in the industry. The platform is continuing to expand into new global regions, and the company plans to bring the Climate FieldView platform to Europe in the near term, in addition to Argentina, South Africa and Australia over the next few years.
