A new agreement between Climate FieldView™ and VariMax offers easy access to new tools for farmers wanting real-time, data-driven nitrogen and irrigation management recommendations.
Farmers now have the option to connect select information from their FieldView account to access variable and average flat-rate nitrogen and irrigation management recommendations quickly and easily on the VariMax system.
An innovative, farmer-led company within the agricultural technology space, VariMax entered the market with their unique algorithm-based system in 2019. VariMax offers exclusive tools that analyze their existing crop and help producers incorporate nitrogen and irrigation management recommendations into their farming practices. The company has customers on a global basis, assisting farmers who want to integrate environmentally sustainable production methods and greenhouse gas solutions into their portfolio.
"We are excited about making our N-CHECK and WATER-CHECK tools available to Climate FieldView customers," stated Shane Ohlde, Founder / Chief Executive Officer of VariMax. “Climate FieldView’s interest in offering farmers and their agronomic partners easy access to VariMax real-time nitrogen and irrigation solutions is a huge win for their customer base. This exciting new opportunity allows farmers to have a winning strategy in a challenging marketplace through the platform of data management solutions."
VariMax’s N-CHECK Nitrogen Management tool provides real-time variable and average flat-rate nitrogen prescriptions in minutes. The program uses actual data from farmers’ crops and fields to produce a specific application recommendation to maximize yield and minimize over-application.
The company’s WATER-CHECK Irrigation Management tool uses live, in-field data, locally customized with the water-holding capacities for each soil type, to determine precisely when plants need water. On average, the WATER-CHECK program reduces over-application of water by 20%. This is a proactive solution to reducing the demand on this country’s fresh water supplies.
"We pursue platform agreements that bring value to our customers’ operations and make it easier for farmers to connect to the tools they choose to use," said Brandon Rinkenberger, Chief Customer Officer, Climate LLC, and Digital Farming at Bayer. "Farmer feedback plays a key role in this process, and there’s excitement around what this new connection with VariMax can provide our shared customers, especially those managing irrigated acres."
VariMax uses satellite imagery to sense the needs of the plants as they develop throughout the growing season in real-time, giving the user the power to respond and optimize the crops potential. This leads to an improved return on investment for VariMax users.
Demand for tools that help with nitrogen and irrigation management and assist producers looking for sustainable solutions led Climate FieldView to integrate VariMax with their platform.
