Claas announced a global partnership with The Climate Corporation, Bayer’s digital farming arm. The partnership is to provide farmers with seamless connectivity and unlimited storage of machine-generated agronomic data directly to their FieldView account.
Farmers who use FieldView and Claas Telematics gain secure cloud-to-cloud access to to machine-generated insights like yield reports and maps, average grain moisture, as well as a digital record of the field worked.
“Farmers have been collecting data from their farm equipment for decades. The same is true for weather data, soil data, crop performance data, the list goes on and on,” said Mike Stern, CEO of The Climate Corporation and Head of Digital Farming for Bayer Crop Science.

“These data sets become even more valuable to our customers when they can be combined with the advanced AI tools we are developing to help drive profitability and reduce risk on their farms. This partnership with Claas simplifies that process, helping farmers around the world use digital tools to sustainably increase their productivity.”
“The Claas premium claim is to offer farmers not only high-performance machines but also best-in-class connectivity solutions,” said Thomas Böck, CEO, Claas. “Direct and secure data exchange with Climate FieldView using the Claas API allows users to integrate machines even better into their existing farm infrastructure. This simplifies documentation and prevents errors and data loss.”
First launched in the United States in 2015, FieldView aims to give farmers a deeper understanding of their fields so they can make more informed operating decisions to optimise yields, maximise efficiency and reduce risk. FieldView is currently on more than 60 million paid acres across North America, South America and Europe and is, according to Bayer, on track to achieve more than 90 million paid acres globally in 2019.
