Trimble extends Connected Farm solution with acquisitions
With the acquisition of RainWave, LLC and Hydro-Engineering Solutions, LLC, Trimble is extending its monitoring and reporting capabilities of the Connected Farm solution as well as strengthening its water management division.
RainWave provides precipitation monitoring services for agribusiness, construction and engineering, government and consumer industries. RainWave will be part of the Connected Farm solution. This service will provide farmers with vital rainfall data they can use to better manage crop production.
Using RainWave, farmers can set up a virtual rain gauge by entering GPS coordinates for identified locations to receive a rainfall report for those locations. Since on-site rain gauges are not needed, farmers no longer need to monitor dispersed gauges or manually track precipitation. The farmer will now be able to obtain this rainfall information through their Connected Farm dashboard.
Hydro-Engineering Solutions is a civil engineering company that specializes in hydrology and hydraulics.
"Acquiring RainWave's assets further strengthens the Connected Farm solution by adding a critical rainfall monitoring and reporting tool that's easily accessible through the Connected Farm dashboard, in addition to the current rainfall email alerts," says Joe Denniston, vice president of Trimble's Agriculture Division. "Farmers will be able to view their fleet, field and rainfall data all in one convenient location, enabling them to make informed decisions based on the latest data. In addition, with Hydro-Engineering we can now provide stronger watershed analysis to help farmers create better water management plans for their fields."
