Numbers and data points mean very little if they can’t be translated into information that helps cropping decisions. Software programs and services are necessary to take many sources of data and not just bring them all to one place, but also make sure the many layers of maps, data points, and images mesh.
A new platform — FieldView by Climate Corporation— makes its Canadian debut this week at Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show. The RealAgriculture team caught up with Anthony Osborne, vice president of marketing for the Climate Corporation, at last month’s Farm Progress Show in Iowa to talk about how FieldView works.
As Osborne explains in the video below, FieldView turns measurements and numbers from sensors, yield maps, weather data, and remote observations, into a “layer cake” of information that can impact decision making on the farm. The key, he says, is in linking all the maps and observations to a cause and effect relationship on yield, like with its nitrogen advisor application.
Currently used on over 14 million acres in the United States, Osborne says that the platform was beta tested in Eastern Canada this year. Watch this space for more from Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show!
