Iteris, Inc., a leader in providing information solutions to the transportation and agriculture markets, added Field Workability and Spray Window services to its ClearAg platform. Field Workability and Spray Window functionality is available in the ClearAg application or as a programmatic data service via APIs for integration with third-party agricultural software applications.
ClearAg Field Workability and Spray Window’s Advisory Services for precision farming provide field-level weather, global soil and decision support software solutions. The Field Workability Advisor identifies when field conditions are accessible for equipment, by location. Growers can submit actual observations of field conditions and the ClearAg Advisory Service engine learns nuances associated with each particular farm and field.
The ClearAg Spray Window decision support service processes weather, soil and canopy wetness information of specific fields to help identify optimum weather conditions that best support the spraying of nutrients and pesticides, factoring in spray drift, temperature, precipitation, and soil conditions.
“We are committed to providing agribusinesses and growers with real-time and predictive content and actionable information that will enhance decision-making in each stage of crop production,” said Tom Blair, senior vice president, Performance Analytics at Iteris. “With the addition of Field Workability and Spray Window Advisors to our ClearAg solution set, agribusinesses can maximize the efficiency of their growing operations, allowing customers the highest degree of precision in managing their resource allocation.”
Field Workability and Spray Window Advisors are the latest features available in the ClearAg decision-support and crop health advisory services. They follow the recent product launches of ClearAg Select field-level weather and ClearAg Prime soil condition information, which are designed to empower third-party precision ag applications with field-level analytics information for data-driven farming.
