Farmers will have increased opportunity to access and apply digital tools and Bayer data science capabilities.

The Climate Corporation, Bayer’s digital farming arm, and Horsch, a manufacturer of on-farm technology, announced a new global agreement. Farmers around the world will have new ways to connect their Horsch seeders, planters and other implements to the Climate FieldView platform, making it easier for them to apply digital tools and data science on their farming operations.

Connectivity through Climate FieldView Drive device

Horsch customers using FieldView currently have broad connectivity through the Climate FieldView Drive device, which plugs into a diagnostic port in their tractor cab and uses bluetooth technology to stream agronomic data from their Horsch equipment, before being synced with their FieldView cloud.

From there, farmers have the ability to access their historical farm activities anytime from a computer or mobile device and gain advanced insights about their farm. They also have the option to share their data with a trusted agronomic partner to assist with key decisions on their farm.

Upload data generated by Horsch equipment

Through this new agreement, mutual customers will have the opportunity and option to digitally connect to their farm in new ways, including the ability to upload data generated by their Horsch equipment directly into their FieldView account through the Data Inbox tool, which does not require the use of the FieldView Drive.

In the future, Horsch and The Climate Corporation hope to continue to grow the agreement to provide farmers with more granular equipment and agronomic insights.
