MONTREAL (June 12, 2019) — Effigis Geo-Solutions (Effigis), a leader in innovative geospatial-driven technology, announced today a platform partnership agreement with The Climate Corporation (Climate), a subsidiary of Bayer. This agreement will provide two-way data connectivity between the Climate FieldView™ digital agriculture platform and Effigis’s FieldApex fertilizer management platform. The partnership will offer Canadian farmers and their agronomic partners optimized nitrogen management support for the 2019 growing season, enabling access to Effigis corn nitrogen rate prescriptions in the FieldView platform.
“We are delighted to collaborate with Climate to bring more value to farmers, helping them make the most out of their farm data to manage nitrogen through platform integration,” said Nicos-Keable Vezina, Precision Agriculture Director at Effigis. “Partnering with Climate is a step forward in Effigis’ vision to connect innovative technologies, artificial intelligence and agronomic insights to develop strategic fertilizer prescription tools and apps that can increase farmer profitability and sustainability.”
With Climate FieldView, farmers across more than 60 million paid acres globally are experiencing fast, accessible field data collection and the ability to gain analytics-based insights from their data for increased productivity. The new addition of the FieldApex platform will provide farmers who use Climate FieldView the ability to seamlessly access additional fertilization management tools to support their field management decisions, backed by industry-leading technology and data specific to their operations.
“Given the importance of more precise nitrogen management for farmers, along with increasingly unpredictable weather conditions, partnering with Effigis will enable Climate to help our mutual farmer customers avoid over-fertilization or potential yield losses,’ said Mark Young, CTO and Head of Product for The Climate Corporation.
