Collaboration To Optimize YieldsMarch 17, 2014 9:12am
Bayer CropScience and John Deere are working together to integrate data access, wireless data transmission, and delivery of prescription recommendations to help farmers optimize yields and return on investment.
The collaboration will enable Bayer CropScience and John Deere to provide data-enabled decision-support tools for farmers.
This year, Bayer CropScience will initiate R&D-based field pilots designed to use agronomic data to prescribe products to maximize yield potential and overall profitability on each acre. The company’s digital farming initiatives are designed to link agronomics, product performance and best management practices, while utilizing variable-rate and wirelessly connected technology offered by John Deere precision machinery.
By integrating these elements, the two companies hope to enhance sustainable value at the farmer level and increase yields.
