CLAAS, Climate Corporation Look To Connect Capabilities
As soon as Fall 2017, a collaboration between CLAAS and The Climate Corporation will enable data to seamlessly flow from CLAAS Lexion combines and Jaguar forage harvesters into the FieldView digital ag platform using the FieldView Drive device. This partnership not only will give more farmers access to simple data collection and storage wirelessly, but also will enhance field map visualization and harvest data analysis.
“We are delighted with the codevelopment that has been taking place between The Climate Corporation and CLAAS of America in our efforts to enable field data compatibility,” says Brandon Olstad, platform manager for Efficient Agriculture Systems by CLAAS. “We look forward to delivering near real-time, in-cab harvest data to the Climate FieldView platform, where our customers can benefit from all of Climate’s powerful digital tools for optimized decision-making.”
The CLAAS Quantimeter yield and moisture measurement systems generate data. The FieldView Drive, which connects to the CAN diagnostic port of compatible CLAAS machinery, will then transfer field data into farmers’ Climate FieldView accounts, where they can easily visualize and analyze their yield data, right in the field.
“Helping farmers get all their data in one place, including the data generated from their farming equipment, is a core focus at Climate,” says Max Dougherty, business development account lead for The Climate Corporation. “We are committed to helping farmers connect their data, across equipment brands, to the Climate FieldView platform so they can experience deeper field insights. We’re pleased to collaborate with CLAAS of America to help even more farmers gain a better understanding of their fields and to enhance their productivity through transformative digital tools.”
