Farmers Edge does water deal
Farmers Edge of Manitoba and Lindsay Corp. of Nebraska and Ames, Iowa, are integrating digital platforms, which they say will help growers make more informed water management and irrigation decisions.
The plan is designed to give growers the ability to add pivot irrigation data and access to FieldNET Pivot Watch through FarmCommand, which will help farmers better understand when, where, and how much to irrigate.
The combination of the two digital platforms helps growers to make more informed water management decisions to optimize applications and yield potential.
It will also allow growers to access digital tools that deliver real-time information to control pivots and monitor crop health, along with advanced models to help identify issues such as seeding or application errors, tile drainage, weather damage, pests and disease.
Plans are underway to connect and digitize two million irrigated acres by the end of 2021.
This expansion delivers new levels of integration to provide the most advanced AI-driven crop management solution available.
