Iteris' ClearAg to support FluroSat's crop health services platform
May. 10, 2019
Under the terms of the software-as-a-service agreement, ClearAg will provide location-specific environmental intelligence through its application programming interface (API) to FluroSat's crop health services platform. The integrated solution will enhance FluroSat's scientifically validated climatics, crop yield modelling and decision support platform for agronomists and progressive farmers in several of the world's largest agricultural regions.
"At a time of unprecedented change throughout the agricultural industry, innovation is especially important to increase productivity and ensure global food security. We are excited to work with Iteris to integrate ClearAg's environmental intelligence into our crop health services platform to improve farm efficiency, sustainability and profitability for our users," said Anastasia Volkova, CEO and founder of FluroSat. "ClearAg's location-specific current, forecast and historical weather data will complement our decision support capability; thereby, enabling our users to make the best possible decisions for successful farm management."
"We are thrilled that FluroSat has selected ClearAg's environmental intelligence to power its crop health services platform for agronomists and progressive farmers in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and Latin America," said Jim Chambers, senior vice president and general manager, Agriculture and Weather Analytics at Iteris. "Through its FluroSense and ProductionWise services, FluroSat is dedicated to harnessing deep spectral insights to help farmers and growers improve their yield, and I am proud that ClearAg's weather data will ultimately help to feed the planet more sustainably."
With Iteris ClearAg, FluroSat's platform users will have access to location-specific information including temperature, rainfall, humidity, wind speed, Dewpoint and solarwave radiation, thus enabling critical decisions to be made for crop management.
