Mar 15, 2018
We’re very pleased to announce a new data connection between FieldNET and the John Deere Operations Center – a connection that will help growers improve irrigation precision and productivity.
“This new connection will allow growers who utilize both FieldNET and the John Deere Operations Center platforms to share they data between the two systems to achieve greater operational efficiencies,” said Randy Wood, president of Agricultural Irrigation at Lindsay Corporation.
FieldNET is a fully integrated wireless management tool that gives growers the ability to remotely manage and control entire irrigation systems, regardless of electric pivot brand. For added decision support, FieldNET Advisor™ takes this to the next level, giving growers science-based recommendations to make faster, better-informed decisions about when, where and how much to irrigate.
“FieldNET Advisor combines environmental inputs, including soil type and hyper-local weather, with key crop statistics to automatically created an optimized irrigation schedule and variable rate irrigation recommendation,” Wood said. “The grower can then put the scheduled an recommendations into action with the simple touch of a button on a smartphone, tablet or laptop.”
The new data connection will allow users of both FieldNET and the John Deere Operations Center to establish an automatic flow of crop and planting data – saving time and improving the precision of the resulting crop zones and variable rate irrigation recommendations. Data points delivered at launch from the John Deere Operations Center include crop areas, crop types, hybrids and planting dates.
“We understand the power that comes with the ability to leverage big data and the need to work with other organizations to help our customers better utilize that data to maximize operational efficiencies,” Wood said. “We look forward to more cross-platform data sharing capabilities through FieldNET in the future.”
