Climate FieldView terminates platform partnership agreement with Tillable
After taking a beating on social media, Climate FieldView has terminated its platform partnership with Tillable.
Last October, Climate FieldView—part of The Climate Corporation, Bayer’s digital farming division—formed a partnership with Tillable to enable FieldView’s customers using Tillable to more easily share farm operation details, such as planting and yield data, already collected under the FieldView platform.
However, that partnership went awry recently, with concerns being registered by Twitter users regarding data sharing and land rent offers.
On February 14, The Climate Corporation terminated the agreement. Here’s a statement that Mike Stern, CEO of The Climate Corporation, issued.
Customers have full control over who they share their data with, including third-party FieldView platform partners. No data sharing has been enabled with Tillable. We have no investment interests in Tillable or any of our platform partners.
Farmers care about how their data is used, and we do too. We adopted a firm stance on farmers’ ownership of their data in 2015, and our position remains unchanged. Customer trust is paramount. We will continue to work to earn it every day.
