Climate FieldView, Bayer’s digital agronomic platform, and Combyne have announced the next phase in integrating the two platforms for clients.
For the first time, customers in both the U.S. and Canada will be able to connect their agronomic data in FieldView to their marketing data in Combyne, enabling them to make more informed decisions, the companies say.
Combyne is a crop marketing record-keeping and decision-making support tool that consolidates key information related to grain storage balances, contracts, deliveries, and settlements across multiple buyers, and net overall marketed positions per crop.
Bayer says that FieldView allows farmers to collect and analyze data from seed to harvest so they can better understand crop input performance and overall yield results. The addition and integration of Combyne means that customers will have the option to transfer seeded acres and yield metrics from FieldView to Combyne, without needing to export, upload, and enter their data twice.
“From crop planning through crop marketing, farmers should be able to connect digital platforms that support their operations,” says Brandon Rinkenberger, chief customer officer for Climate LLC and Digital Farming at Bayer. “The new integration between Combyne and FieldView provides our customers with further capabilities to put their data to work – saving time by eliminating double data entry, increasing confidence when making timely sale decisions, and ultimately improving marketing outcomes for farmers.”
Combyne also allows farmers to manage all their grain trade documents in one place so they have a clear view on their contractual commitments, delivery statuses, storage positions, and cash flow projections from grain sales, making it easier to manage contract risk and delivery logistics.
