Mar 13, 2018Lindsay FieldNET now connects with John Deere Operations Center
Lindsay Corporation has partnered with John Deere to provide growers with more irrigation data. Its pivot telemetry tool, FieldNET will now connect with the John Deere Operations Center.
“We understand the power that comes with the ability to leverage big data,” said Randy Wood, president of agricultural irrigation at Lindsay. “This new connection will help growers who utilize both FieldNET and the John Deere Operations Center platforms to share their data between the two systems to achieve greater operational efficiencies.”
FieldNET is a wireless management tool that gives growers the ability to remotely monitor and control entire irrigation systems, regardless of electric pivot brand. The platform delivers real-time status updates and alerts about possible performance issues. For added decision support, FieldNET Advisor gives growers science-based recommendations to make faster, better-informed decisions about when, where and how much to irrigate, according to Lindsay.
The new data connection will allow users of both platforms to establish an automatic flow of relevant data from the John Deere Operations Center, delivering additional data points informing irrigation recommendations from FieldNET Advisor. Automatically populating FieldNET Advisor with this data, such as crop details and planting dates, is designed to save growers time and improve the precision of the resulting crop zones and variable rate irrigation recommendations. The data connection is now available to FieldNET and John Deere Operations Center users.
