DuPont Pioneer and Raven Industries today announced a collaboration to enable data transfer from Pioneer Encirca℠ services to Raven Viper®4 and other compatible field computers through Raven’s Slingshot® wireless connectivity solution.
As part of this data exchange, growers can choose to have their EncircaSM services prescriptions wirelessly transferred directly to compatible Raven controllers to be accurately applied in their fields, as well as to automatically report what was applied for future analysis.
“We are excited about the new addition of Pioneer EncircaSM services to the list of decision agriculture and software solutions already compatible with Slingshot®,” said Paul Welbig, Raven Industries general manager of its Austin Technology Center and Slingshot operations. “The open architecture of Slingshot® easily enables great collaborators like Pioneer to provide their growers with technologically advanced solutions that help maximize yield.”
The Slingshot® API, or Application Programming Interface, is an open and secure data connectivity platform that provides a simple way for software systems to connect with Raven controllers in the field utilizing wireless technology.
