New Partnership To Elevate Precision Harvesting
Reliable data is essential for precision farming. Two giants on the global agricultural stage are now partnering to unlock more benefits and ease of use for South African crop producers.
The new commercial partnership between Climate FieldView™ digital platform and CLAAS will unlock even more advantages for farmers.
The announcement was made at the Grain SA Nampo Harvest Day event near Bothaville, Free State, last week.
Amidst climate challenges, higher input costs, inflation and the dollar exchange rate, the importance of managing inputs and measuring yields have become crucial for South African farmers to achieve profitable harvests.
This is why the partnership’s packaged deal is aimed at bringing leading data-driven decision-making tools and top class combine harvesting equipment together for farmers who are ready to take the next step in precision agriculture.
SIGNIFICANCE TO FARMERS
The CLAAS FieldView™ promotion on new CLAAS equipment purchases will include FieldView™ hardware and software with a one-year subscription for free. This technology will enable growers to visualize harvest data and help them to make more precise decisions.
The software includes a one-year FieldView™ PLUS subscription that can be renewed after year one and upgraded as preferred.
The hardware includes one FieldView™ Drive, one iPad mounting bracket and one CLAAS cable/harness to connect the harvester and drive.
Climate FieldView™ is the digital agricultural platform of Bayer that provides data-driven insights and product offerings to help optimize farming operations and decisions in an innovative way.
