For the 2015 season, farmers can experience the value of advanced field-level insights through the upgraded Climate Pro service, offered in key corn-growing regions this season for $3 per acre through certified dealers. Climate Pro uses a combination of publicly available data sets, data licensed from third parties and farmer-provided information to feed data science models that deliver customized, field-level insights for farmers as they work to make important decisions about their operations.
“With our launch last year, we received valuable feedback from farmers on the tool,” says Sarah Pierce, marketing manager for The Climate Corporation. “That feedback is at the heart of the product upgrades we are making in 2015.”
Highlights of the 2015 product offering, available in March, include: a new mobile experience to help farmers more easily access the tools anywhere, anytime; an increased focus on the tools farmers value most; and a field-by-field user interface to maximize the value of the service.
“Farmers told us they found significant value in the field health and nitrogen management tools of Climate Pro and that they wanted a more comprehensive view of each field,” says Pierce. “In the 2015 offering, farmers will see a field-by-field view of their farm, with both nitrogen and field health information. We are excited about the added functionality and value these changes can provide for our farmer customers at the three dollar price point.”
