While undoubtedly bringing a wealth of benefits to the agricultural space, rapid advances in ag technology have produced exponentially more data, overwhelming decision makers in the process. Whether on a product and its performance, how a field has been managed or how a crop is growing in a given season, there is an abundance of
Over the past few months, the Iteris ClearAg team has been developing a set of agronomic indices to demonstrate our ability to distill complex environmental data and its impact on key periods during the growing season or environmental impacts on your product performance.
In the coming weeks, Iteris is set to launch the ClearAg Viewer, a web-based platform that enables the visualization of many of the ClearAg API endpoints.
As the availability and volume of data to help us understand what is happening or will happen in an agricultural field or orchard continues to grow exponentially, the challenge we now face is how to collect, synthesize and use this data to provide simple and actionable understandings and recommendations for a user.
DTN is proud to partner with CropMetrics as it launches its Virtual Predictor technology, which allows growers to create custom irrigation plans that forecast irrigation requirements for the week ahead, using environmental intelligence from DTN ClearAg.
The Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board’s (AHDB) WeatherHub, which aggregates and visualizes weather data, added ClearAg current and forecast weather information to its website, as well as via bespoke applications using third-party data dashboards, in July 2018.
In the first installment of this three-part blog series we began to dive into the numbers from the USDA Farm & Ranch Irrigation Survey from (2013). In particular, we took a look at the sobering adoption numbers for what one might call “precision irrigation scheduling” techniques.
I am a product manager in an industry that is still trying to find its footing. Precision agriculture technologies, particularly irrigation technologies, are still trying to prove their worth to producers in a way that would make them willing to leave the old ways behind to explore these new technologies for field operations.
For thousands of years, the survival of farmers’ crops — and finances — have been inextricably linked to the weather.
