Digital agriculture company Farmers Edge has announced a partnership with Nebraska-based irrigation equipment manufacturer Lindsay Corporation to sync the companies’ farm management and water application technology.
Farmers Edge says its digital agronomic tools, including satellite imagery, will be offered through Lindsay’s Zimmatic network. Lindsay’s FieldNet software and Farmers Edge’s digital platform will also have the ability to share data back and forth.
“When you combine the remote sensing expertise, the datasets and integrated platform of Farmers Edge with the expert systems that control the pumps that make sure they’re delivering the right amount of water at the right spot at the right time, that’s really what we’re delivering,” says Ron Osborne, chief strategy officer with Manitoba-based Farmers Edge, in the interview below.
By combining Farmers Edge’s remote sensing and modeling capabilities with Lindsay’s irrigation controls, Osborne says it’ll be possible to automate variable rate irrigation prescriptions, resulting in improved efficiency and sustainability benefits.
