Agriculture.com Staff 10/15/2012 @ 11:20am

The Climate Corporation today announced its new climate.com service to provide growers with weather and crop insights for their fields. To date, The Climate Corporation has helped farmers protect their operations with technology-driven weather insurance. With climate.com, the company is expanding its offerings to also help growers plan and manage their operations, saving them time and improving their operational decision-making.

“Farmers tell us that they can’t get all the weather and agronomic data they want, organized in the way that makes it useful for them,” says David Friedberg, founder and CEO of The Climate Corporation. “We not only have the data they’re looking for, but we have developed a service to present that information in an elegant and accessible experience,” says David Friedberg, founder and CEO of The Climate Corporation. “On Climate.com, we have taken the first steps in unleashing the power of our unique data and analyses, giving agricultural producers what they’ve never had before – valuable insights that will support their seasonal planning and daily decision- making.”

With climate.com, growers will be able to get snapshot views of recent and forecasted precipitation and other weather conditions on their fields to manage their daily work. To get started, growers will simply select their fields through an interactive map, save those fields, and can then check them at any time from their computer, tablet or smartphone.
