Koch Agronomic Services, which produces and markets a global portfolio of plant performance technologies including AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabilizer and SUPERU® fertilizer, has agreed to provide product research data to The Climate Corporation to use in the development of the data science models that power the company’s Climate FieldView™ digital agriculture platform. These advanced models feed Climate’s nitrogen monitoring tools that help farmers build customized management plans for each field to optimize their inputs and maximize productivity.
With the addition of Koch Agronomic Services’ product data, farmers will be able to select the Koch Agronomic Services’ product they applied in each field in their Climate FieldView account, along with the type of nitrogen fertilizer applied, making Climate’s nitrogen insights even more personalized.
“Farmers are always working to better manage their agricultural inputs, and this agreement reinforces both The Climate Corporation and Koch Agronomic Services’ commitment to enhanced nitrogen efficiency,” said Mike Stern, chief executive officer for The Climate Corporation. “Climate’s data science models ingest millions of data points from multiple sources to help farmers track the level of available nitrogen for a field, and to generate customized management zones within the field, throughout the growing season. Through this agreement, we can build even more robust models to deliver greater value to farmers as they work to manage this important crop nutrient more efficiently.”
“Our goal is to help farmers achieve their production, profitability and environmental goals, and we believe this data sharing agreement provides an additional tool to increase efficiency in agricultural practices,” said Chase Koch, president of Koch Agronomic Services. “We know each field has different nitrogen needs, and we believe adding data on our scientifically-proven enhanced efficiency fertilizer products into the Climate FieldView platform will deliver deeper insights to farmers to help them manage crop fertility.”
Officially launched in 2015, the Climate FieldView™ platform is on more than 100 million acres across the United States, Canada and Brazil, with more than 100,000 U.S. farmers engaging in Climate's digital tools. Backed by a powerful data science engine and an extensive field research network in the agriculture industry, the Climate FieldView platform delivers customized insights that help farmers better understand field variability, customize their agronomic practices, make data-driven decisions with confidence to maximize yield potential, improve efficiency and manage risk.
