Iteris, Inc. recently announced that they have entered into a content partnership agreement with SST Software in order to to deliver ClearAg agronomic information to SST users and integrate real-time weather insights to help SST users improve operational performance and decision-making.
“The integration of Iteris’ ClearAg Platform content into the SST system will provide our customers with the precision weather-based information needed to minimize risks and maximize productivity,” said Beth Clarke, director of product management at SST Software.
One of the largest external pivot factors in precision agriculture is weather, making knowledge of historical and impending weather impacts incredibly critical. ClearAg content, which includes crop canopy and field-level weather insights and is available globally, can offers relevant agronomic weather insights for SST users the opportunity for better decision-making.
“We are excited to provide SST’s customers with access to Iteris’ smart farming content through the ClearAg Service,” said Tom Blair, senior vice president of Iteris’ Performance Analytics Division. “The ClearAg Service leverages robust agronomic and proprietary land surface models, and machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques that dynamically learn about specific farm operations to continually improve decision support analytics. Iteris’ partnership with SST Software means users can access relevant agronomic data for real-time decision making in context to current, forecasted, and historical conditions.”
SST Software will begin to offer ClearAg agronomic content to their customers in Fall 2016, and the fall transition will act as the initial step toward a complete offering of Iteris’ ClearAg crop health models to SST users.
