The expanded partnership will also focus on a collaboration in data science, machine learning and AI-driven analytics to deliver highly precise water-based insights and predictive models.

As part of the strategic initiative, Farmers Edge will provide Lindsay access to both high-resolution satellite imagery and field-centric dataset. Syncing Lindsay’s irrigation management platform – FieldNET Advisor – with the Farmers Edge fully-integrated, AI-driven farm management platform – FarmCommand – creates an opportunity for growers to access digital tools that deliver real-time information to control pivots and monitor crop health, along with advanced predictive models to help identify issues, including: seeding or application errors, tile drainage, weather damage, pests, disease and more.

Farmers Edge will also provide Lindsay’s FieldNET Pivot Watch – a remote irrigation monitoring solution that includes proprietary IoT sensors that connect to any center pivot – and FieldNET Advisor to help growers better understand when, where and how much to irrigate.

“This integration of platforms enables growers to use tools like high-resolution satellite imagery to see a visual indication of variation in crop health across a field from the convenience of their laptop or smartphone,” said Albert Maurin, product manager for irrigation software at Lindsay Corporation. “The connected farm strategy also enables growers to collect all aspects of field data and feed that information into FieldNET Advisor and FarmCommand. Once that data is collected, the platforms can provide AI-powered insights to ensure the most accurate decisions are being made on the farm.”

Wade Barnes, CEO and co-founder of Farmers Edge, said the company is focused on creating a digital agricultural ecosystem that’s centered around a fully connected farm. “Farmers Edge has thousands of connected machines, weather stations and in-field sensors across the globe, but we have yet to bring a crucial asset – center pivots,” he noted. “Having access to FieldNET Pivot Watch is a key component for achieving this goal. The ability to add pivot irrigation data into our unique field-centric datasets, and then move that information into FieldNET Advisor is extremely exciting. The power of the insights and analytics from the partnership will change how farms use irrigation, and we’re eager to bring this type of industry changing technology to two million irrigated acres by 2021.”

This enhanced platform will be available to new and existing Farmers Edge and Lindsay growers through the Zimmatic dealer network and the Farmers Edge sales network.
