Case IH’s Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) Connect farm management system is now speaking seamlessly to six more major ag service providers in North America, the company said.
AFS Connect users will now be able to share their agronomic data from their management portal directly to and from these third-party service providers, Case IH said in a release Dec. 4.
Depending on the options offered by the provider, these producers may elect to share yield data, guidance lines and much more from any computer or tablet connected to the internet, Case IH said. In return, the service providers will have the capability to send resulting prescriptions and analysis.
The new service providers include cloud-based mobile app and web platform AgDNA; ag co-operative Growmark’s FS Advanced Information Services (AIS) platform; software firm AgWorks’ AgOS agronomy platform; AgReliant Genetics’ web-based platform Advantage Acre; and U.S.-based systems FieldReveal and I.F.A.R.M.
“These new service providers, along with the AFS Connect data-sharing functionality, will provide producers a secure way to transfer agronomic data between their machines and their trusted advisers,” Chris Dempsey, Case IH’s AFS marketing manager, said in the company’s release.
“As producers seek more actionable data to make better decisions, this will give them the flexibility to work with their preferred providers.”
The service providers join a roster that already includes Decisive Farming’s My Farm Manager platform; DuPont Pioneer’s Encirca; MapShots’ AgStudio software; AgIntegrated’s Onsite; and Trimble Connected Farm.
“Expanding data sharing providers is of the highest priority for Case IH; we plan to establish and announce a number of similar data-sharing agreements throughout 2018 and beyond,” Dempsey said.Tagged AFS Connect, machinery
