The Value of Connectivity in Precision Farming

Farmers and their trusted advisors face many challenges in today's world of connectivity.  In many situations, data is collected in the field using USB flash drives or other types of memory cards.  This process is only successful if the data is transferred back to the office in a timely manner.  Trimble's Connected Farm™ integrates data from multiple precision farming technologies so growers can easily view information from field activities such as planting, spraying or harvesting – without needing to physically visit each field or hand compile information. Precision farming data from a wide range of machine makes and models combined with commodity markets data, weather forecasts, rainfall totals and irrigation monitoring, offers growers an easy-to-use platform for total farm management. Growers can access the integrated data on the Connected Farm using any Web-enabled device such as a smartphone, tablet or PC.
