The Climate Corporation (Climate), a subsidiary of Bayer, and Lindsay Corporation, a leading global manufacturer and distributor of irrigation technology, today announced a platform agreement that will establish two-way data connectivity between The Climate Corporation’s Climate FieldView™ digital agriculture platform and Lindsay’s FieldNET platform. Through the collaboration, mutual farmer customers will be able to make faster, more-informed field and irrigation management decisions.
“As global water use for crop production increases, farmers are adopting more efficient irrigation practices to sustainably improve their productivity,” said Mike Stern, CEO of The Climate Corporation and Head of Digital Farming at Bayer. “Like Climate, Lindsay recognizes the benefits of helping farmers leverage their field data to optimize and simplify all their management decisions. Through this new partnership, we look forward to helping farmers seamlessly connect their data between both systems to gain more precise irrigation and water use insights to get the most out of every acre.”
With Climate FieldView, farmers across more than 60 million paid acres are experiencing fast, easy field data collection and the ability to gain analytics-based insights from their data for increased productivity. With the addition of Lindsay as a platform partner, shared farmer customers will see additional values, streamlined data transfer, more precise irrigation monitoring and the ability to visualize and analyze irrigation data. Combining this information alongside other important field data layers in the FieldView platform will unlock new insights about field performance.
“We’re thrilled to collaborate with The Climate Corporation to help more farmers harness the power of their data to more efficiently manage water use for improved productivity, ” said Tim Hassinger, President and CEO at Lindsay. “At Lindsay, our goal is to make water and energy-savings accessible to all farmers through our best-in-class irrigation scheduling solutions. Through this collaboration with Climate, we’re making significant strides towards that goal.”
