EFC Systems, Inc., announce an expanded integration between its FieldAlytics product and Agronomic Technology Corp’s Adapt-N nitrogen recommendations and monitoring system. With this functionality now in mass release, FieldAlytics users have the ability to leverage field data already available within their software to automatically generate powerful, unbiased, and scientifically validated variable rate nitrogen recommendations.

"We achieved our goal to make the data flow easily between both systems, letting FieldAlytics users add additional knowledge and insight into their growers’ management decisions. We’re excited to offer Adapt-N’s service to our users without requiring them to work within separate tools.” said Devron VonGunden, EFC Systems’ Senior Product Manager for FieldAlytics. The expanded integration enables a variety of agronomic data from within FieldAlytics to be used in configuring Adapt-N recommendations. This includes utilization of soil test results, yield data, management zones, as well as existing applications of fertilizer, manure and irrigation.

“This capability provides seamless access to market leading decision tools,” said Ernie Chappell, EFC Systems’ president & CEO “We see Adapt-N as a leader in Nitrogen management.” EFC Systems’ customers have flexibility to utilize and market Adapt-N to their grower customers in a flexible fashion, and can optionally choose which fields should benefit from the joint offering.

“At Agronomic Technology Corp, we strive to go where the data is, and empower users to gain additional value from the tools they’ve already selected and trust,” said Agronomic Technology Corp’s CEO, Steve Sibulkin. He added that, partnering with EFC Systems to jointly promote profitable sustainability across its user base would give EFC users easier ways to take advantage of Adapt-N’s demonstrated ability to improve grower profit while reducing nitrogen losses to the environment. “Adapt-N is offered independently, with a solid scientific foundation, and has been recognized by the industry as setting the standard in nitrogen modeling,” Sibulkin said, citing the tool’s recent NutrientStar validation, and that it is also a top tier solution in Walmart’s Supplier Sustainability Toolkit.

In the coming weeks, EFC Systems plans to make a second Agronomic Technology Corp product, N-Insight, available to its FieldAlytics users. N-Insight is an instant nitrogen diagnostic tool that produces a 5-year nitrogen loss report for a field. The main intent is to enable the agronomist to have a meaningful conversation with growers about how they might improve nitrogen management on their fields.
