New interface to transfer data between Claas and Bayer

Presented by

Precision agricultural data and analysis can now be easily exchanged across platforms between two of the world’s leading ag-tech companies

Data can now be safely transferred between Claas telematic platform and Bayer's Climate FieldView technology

Using a specially developed application programming interface, users can now seamlessly transfer yield and machine data, collected by the Claas telematics platform, to Bayer’s Climate FieldView platform.

The interface means farmers can now analyse and gain insights across both Class’ and Bayer’s platforms; helping them to make improved decisions in the field.

Claas Harvest Centre general manager – product, Tim Needham, explains the interface further and suggests any precision ag technology should focus on the easy transfer of data across platforms.  

"This new interface means all of the data collected by Telematics can be automatically retrieved and sent to Climate FieldView to generate precise sowing or fertiliser prescriptions for the following season," Needham says.

 "This technology allows farmers to actively manage their productivity, reduce risk and save time by gathering data and conducting analysis all in one place.

 "Site-specific fertiliser, crop protection and planting and sowing strategies depend upon access to accurate information about site-specific yield differences from the previous crop.

"In addition to yield data, the system can also document important machine data, such as fuel consumption, to develop a complete overview of the efficiency and profitability of farming operations in each field."

Data logged through Class Telematics includes GPS location, crop yield and quantity and machine settings, and can be recorded on Class combine harvesters, forage harvesters, large square balers, tractors and loader wagons.

Collected data is then transmitted via mobile phone network from the machines to a server where it then can be viewed via the Telematics website on any computer, laptop or smartphone where it can be exported to more common farm management software programs.

Climate FieldView, developed by pharmaceutical giant Bayer, is an industry-leading digital platform which provides data integration and analysis on farms including information regarding yield analysis, field health imagery, manual seed scripts and field region reports.

Data transferred between Claas Telematics and Climate FieldView remains property of the account owner and consent can be revoked by the user at any time to disable the data exchange.
