Broadening Connections to Deliver In-Season Insights

Farmer walking in field

In today’s connected world, the ability to access your on-farm data quickly, easily and securely is essential. Accessing your data to make informed decisions in-season can drive profitability on your operation.


Now there’s a new way to make data more readily available to farmers who do business with a retailer that is affiliated with WinField United. WinField United has connected Climate FieldView™ to the Answer Tech Data Silo® — WinField United’s cloud-based data-management system. The Data Silo securely stores and aggregates data to help farmers make data-backed decisions and optimize ROI throughout the season.


More connected cabs, free-flowing data

This collaboration lets farmers who use Climate FieldView collect field-level data and move that information to the Data Silo, where it is securely stored. It’s always the farmer’s choice to share their data, and data only moves if the farmer coordinates this connection through their local WinField United retailer.


This data can then automatically flow into downstream tools. Opening up these connections expands the reach of key data elements and allows users to leverage data in new ways, all while saving time.


New opportunities to leverage data in-season

This new integration offers a variety of possibilities for preseason and in-season information gathering. For example, if you’re a corn grower, having planting data and information about a hybrid automatically entered into the Data Silo allows you to cross-check it with Answer Plot® data to determine that hybrid’s response-to-fungicide or response-to-nitrogen score. Additionally, if during the season you have disease or insect outbreaks in your fields, or if tissue samples in your region are trending behind on nitrogen, your agronomist can alert you, giving you the opportunity to remedy problems and optimize your ROI potential.


Through our technology, WinField United empowers farmers to streamline workflow, update information automatically and, most important, protect their data. This allows data to work harder and provides farmers in our retail network with another solution for seamless data flow on their operations.


The Data Silo is available to any farmer, no matter what equipment or technology they may be using. To find out more about what this option offers and how you can access it, talk with your WinField United retailer.

Important: Before use always read and follow label instructions. Crop performance is dependent on several factors many of which are beyond the control of WinField United, including without limitation, soil type, pest pressures, agronomic practices, and weather conditions. Growers are encouraged to consider data from multiple locations, over multiple years, and be mindful of how such agronomic conditions could impact results.
