Seamlessly Integrating Technology Tools: Winfield US and The Climate Corporation

  • Jul 21, 2016
Winfield US (Winfield United Suppliers) and The Climate Corporation are further enhancing their collaboration by implementing a two-way, cross-navigation exchange between the R7® Tool and Climate FieldView™. This improvement will offer a direct interface for easier use by ag retailers, and it will facilitate quicker, data-driven decisions by farmers like you.
 
We expect these changes to roll out in two phases, in time for 2017 crop season planning, and provide retailers with a more streamlined process to help them visualize and use data. With these enhancements, the R7® Tool and the Climate FieldView™ platform can be used very easily in a synergistic way. For example, with your retailer, you’ll be able to call up a historic image and a prescription map from the R7® Tool, and pair them with the Climate FieldView™ platform’s nitrogen monitoring feature to evaluate the past, present and future states of a field. Then, you can use that data to help you make the best decisions.
 
Phase 1, expected to launch in October, will help ag retailers make seed recommendations that best fit a field’s profile. This enhancement will be available to retail sales personnel through navigation from the Climate FieldView™ platform’s prescription tools to the R7® Tool, which accesses Answer Plot® Program data.
 
The R7® Tool will also be enhanced in the coming months. Beginning October 1, the tool will be reengineered to be faster, more user-friendly and customizable, with a single platform accessible from PC, laptop or tablet. Enhancements include new functionality that enables retailers to create a multi-hybrid prescription for variable-rate seeding recommendations.
 
Phase 2 will focus on addressing in-season issues such as nitrogen management. Stay tuned for more information about this phase as we get closer to introducing it in spring 2017.
