The partnership of a global satellite- and weather-based insights company with a leader in information solutions for the transportation/ag markets will provide enhanced weather content through the integration of Iteris’ ClearAg API and GEOSYS Croptical monitoring application.
“Our dual expertise — in agriculture and the high-tech world — is at the core of our identity and our commitment to clients,” said Cécile Tartarin, product manager at GEOSYS.
The GEOSYS Croptical monitoring application provides growers fast access to digital farming solutions. The application allows growers to track crop condition and precipitation, temperature and growing degree days, while comparing current crop conditions and weather patterns to past seasons. Available March 2016.
GEOSYS will apply Iteris’ ClearAg APIs to produce an enhanced Croptical monitoring application with field-level weather data and weather maps the augmented application will leverage ClearAg state-of-the-art weather forecast models, giving users reliable resources to predict rain events and monitor growing degrees in order to plan ahead for effective agriculture management.
Tom Blair, Seniro V.P. of Iteris’ Performance Analytics Division, said, “Combined with ClearAg’s weather data and map APIs, GEOSYS’ enhanced Croptical monitoring application will allow growers to make even more informed decisions and address crop production issues at key stages of the crop growth cycle. [The integration will allow growers to define management practices] from a current, historical and predictive perspective.”
