Lindsay Corporation and DTN Announce Expanded Partnership
The collaboration further strengthens the quality of weather forecasting data available to customers of both platforms
(OMAHA, Neb.) – Oct. 17, 2018 — Lindsay Corporation (NYSE: LNN), a leading global manufacturer/distributor of irrigation and infrastructure equipment and technology, and DTN, an independent source of insights, analysis and decision support solutions, today announced an expanded collaboration that will strengthen their customers’ precision irrigation capabilities.
Since its launch in 2016, FieldNET Advisor® has incorporated DTN’s hyper-local weather forecasts, along with other environmental inputs and key crop statistics, to automatically create optimized irrigation schedules and variable rate irrigation recommendations. With the new collaboration, growers will have the ability to further localize the field-specific weather data and forecasting ability using the FieldNET Advisor irrigation management system.
“While FieldNET Advisor does not require an in-field weather station, the ability to add an in-field sensor from DTN will provide growers with an added layer of confidence about the weather data being used to generate their irrigation recommendations,” said Albert Maurin, sales and tactical marketing manager for Lindsay Corporation. “The data from the weather station will feed into DTN’s powerful and accurate weather forecasts, improving the localization of the weather data for all of the fields surrounding the sensor.”
“We are excited about this expanded partnership and the opportunity to provide an enhanced level of weather data to FieldNET Advisor customers,” said Chris Whittinghill, director of national agribusiness accounts at DTN. “Growers can rely on DTN to deliver the highly accurate weather information they need to make faster, better informed irrigation decisions.”
The most awarded pivot telemetry solution in the industry, FieldNET® technology provides comprehensive options for remote monitoring and control of a grower’s irrigation systems. The platform, which is compatible with almost any brand of electric pivot, delivers real-time information, so growers can monitor and control them quickly and easily via a smartphone, tablet or laptop. FieldNET Advisor takes remote monitoring and control technology to the next level – helping growers decide precisely when, where and how much to irrigate.
“Collaborations between FieldNET and other insight providers like DTN allow the seamless transfer of critical data, which helps growers maximize operational efficiency and productivity,” Maurin said. “We will continue to partner with leading technologies across the precision agriculture value chain to provide our customers with the smartest solution in the industry. When growers invest in FieldNET®, they are investing in a powerful precision agriculture platform that will keep them at the forefront of agriculture technology.”
