“All farmers experience variability in their fields,” said Mike Stern,
chief executive officer for The Climate Corporation. “Climate’s average
customer plants more than 50 million corn seeds in a single season.
Through the innovations we’re adding to the Climate FieldView platform,
farmers can better understand the unique variability of their fields and
customize their agronomic practices by management zone to get the most
out of every seed.”

For the 2017 season, Climate is introducing tools that help farmers
optimize their inputs and instantly visualize and analyze crop
performance to make the best decisions for their fields. The company is
also expanding seamless data connectivity to help farmers get all of
their data in one place and making the Climate Fieldview platform
available to more farmers across the United States.

“Through the Climate FieldView platform, I have been able to reduce my
seed costs per acre through Climate’s seeding prescription tools, which
give me the ability to incorporate soil type, yield and my own knowledge
of my fields,” said farmer Vic Miller of Oelwein, Iowa. “I can also
tailor my nitrogen applications, based on weather events, to specific
areas of my fields as the season progresses, so I can hit my yield
targets while controlling input costs.”
New in Climate FieldView in 2017Yield Analysis Tools – The Climate FieldView platform is
introducing new seed performance analysis tools to help farmers evaluate
the impact their agronomic decisions have on yield, so they can build
the best plan to maximize profitability for the next season. Farmers can
analyze seed performance by soil type, field, or management zones and
better understand their field variability by quickly and easily
comparing digital field maps side-by-side.
Advanced Scripting – This season, farmers will be able to choose
between simple manual seed prescription tools or advanced prescription
tools to help optimize their return on their seed investment. The
Climate FieldView platform’s advanced scripting uses the farmer’s
historical field data, combined with data from proprietary field-testing
results, to provide seed prescription options that farmers can easily
customize and execute on their equipment of choice.
Zone-Based Nitrogen Management – In 2017, the Climate FieldView
platform is enhancing its nitrogen monitoring tools. This season,
farmers will be able to monitor nitrogen by customizable zones in each
field to help them better understand their unique field variability and
take action to prevent yield loss.
Data Connectivity – The Climate FieldView platform is the most
broadly connected digital ag platform in the industry and is further
enhancing its equipment connectivity by expanding the reach of the
Climate FieldViewTM Drive, a device that easily streams field
data directly into the Climate FieldView platform. This season,
FieldView Drive will work with most tractors and more than 50 percent of
combines in the United States and is currently in beta testing for use
in air seeders and application equipment. The company also continues to
build on data import capabilities with other agricultural systems, as
well as manual file upload.

Climate FieldView also is the only third-party digital ag platform with
near-real time data connectivity with John Deere equipment through its
Wireless Data Server (WDS). The WDS technology is now standard on John
Deere’s 2016 S Series combines, and starting with the 2016 harvest,
seamless connection between the WDS and the Climate FieldView platform
is enabled. The WDS is factory installed on 2016 S Series planters and
combines, and most 2012 or later flagship equipment models are
compatible using a retrofit kit.
Expanded Geography – More farmers across the U.S. will
have access to field health imagery through Climate FieldView PlusTM
this coming season, with availability on 165 million acres of corn and
soybeans, 41 million acres more than this past season. Additionally,
field health imagery will be available for all major row crops in 2017.
Pricing and Promotions
For the 2017 season, Climate FieldViewTM Plus provides
seamless data collection, storage and visualization; field health
imagery, manual seeding prescription tools and the new yield analysis
tools for $749. Climate FieldViewTM Pro includes all of the
features available in FieldView Plus, with the addition of nitrogen
monitoring and advanced seeding prescription tools. FieldView Pro is
