KWS Saat adds Iteris ClearAg environmental intelligence to its digital farming platform, CultiVent.
ClearAg will provide location-specific environmental intelligence through its application programming interface (API) to KWS.
KWS will integrate ClearAg’s environmental intelligence into its digital farming platform, CultiVent, which is used by agronomists and growers in Europe and Asia.
Additionally, multiple business teams across KWS will have access to ClearAg’s weather, climatology and soil condition information, as well as visualisation tools.

“We are excited to work with Iteris to integrate ClearAg’s environmental intelligence into our research and development (R&D), modelling and digital farming solutions to provide comprehensive, crop-specific information for our users,” said Mark Bieri, digital farming manager at KWS.
“ClearAg’s location-specific current and historical weather data, as well as its climatology and soil conditions information, will enable farmers and growers on the CultiVent platform worldwide to significantly improve their crop management operations.”
CultiVent is a information service for crop-specific and overarching content about KWS’s products, especially for corn, sugar beets, wheat, barley, rye, and rapeseed. CultiVent offers farmers and growers regional information customisable by growing region, including crop management of grain, nematode management in beet cultivation, and ground temperatures and heat levels for corn.
