Case IH announces a collaboration with four cloud-based agronomic decision-making software companies to give producers new options for connecting their farm with trusted advisers this spring. Offered through AFS Connect data sharing, these agreements allow producers to wirelessly transfer two-way data between the Case IH AFS Connect farm management system and third-party service providers, including My Farm Manager™ web platform from Decisive Farming, Encirca℠ services from DuPont Pioneer, AgStudio® software from MapShots and OnSite technologies from AgIntegrated.

“Producers have indicated that they want seamless, secure transferability of agronomic data between their machines and their trusted advisers,” said Leo Bose, Case IH AFS marketing manager. “These new service providers, along with the AFS Connect data sharing feature provide just that, allowing producers to make the most of their agronomic data and drive daily management decisions.”

From any computer or tablet connected to the internet, producers with AFS Connect can securely share agronomic data, such as yield maps and guidance line patterns, from their AFS Pro 700 monitor with their trusted third-party agronomist or service provider. In return, trusted advisers and service providers can send planting, seeding and fertilizer prescriptions and much more.

Bose added that the company plans to establish and announce additional data-sharing service providers in the future. Case IH extends an open invitation to agronomic service provider companies. Interested third-party providers can seek further information at
