John Deere Dealers Take Advantage of Data-and-Analytics Platform Integrated with Operations Center to Strengthen Customer Relationships and Increase their Use of Other Integrated Solutions Tools
BOULDER, Colo., December 12, 2017 – Agribotix™, a leader in drone-enabled agricultural intelligence, announced a greatly enhanced integration of its platform with the John Deere Operations Center. Positioning its FarmLens™ SaaS platform as “The Gateway to
Precision Agriculture,”™ U.S.-based Agribotix is helping John Deere dealers expand their customers’ use of other Integrated Solutions™ precision ag tools, while also helping farmers increase yields and reduce inputs and other costs.
The updated integration allows a user access to their Digital Scouting Reports, shape files and other reports directly in their Operations Center account. The Digital Scouting Report, the most intuitive and effective in the drone-analytics market, combines whole-field evaluations with field-specific weather and location-tagged photos and comments. As with other valuable precision farming tools used by John Deere customers, FarmLens integrates into John Deere Operations Center allowing all data to be easily accessible from one place.
4Rivers Equipment, a John Deere dealer-customer of Agribotix, uses drones to survey their growers’ fields and processes the data with FarmLens. “Agribotix is the resource needed for expanding and excelling in precision farming,” says 4Rivers’ precision ag expert Andy
Hansen. “Gathering data from agricultural drones can be done any day of the year and with the rapid delivery of results, a precision plan can be adjusted efficiently and effectively, allowing timely decisions to be made about fertilizer application, seeding rates and water
With FarmLens, Deere-dealer personnel can quickly and easily send drone results directly to their growers’ Operations Center accounts. 4Rivers is using this feature with growers who already have a drone. The grower flies the drone and then reviews the shared results with a trained 4Rivers agronomist. 4Rivers is one of the more recent additions to the growing list of dealerships finding that Agribotix solutions provide significant incremental value to their grower-customers.
“Our goal is to help Deere dealers show their growers the variability across fields with the results FarmLens delivers from drone surveys,” said Jason Barton, VP of Sales for Agribotix. “When growers see that variability in their fields, they understand the value of using the full
capabilities of their Deere planter to vary their seeding rates and their Deere sprayer to vary input rates.”
