Making A Connection...


By Dale Cowan, CCA-ON, 4R NMS
Agronomy Strategy Manager and Senior Agronomist
AGRIS Co-operative Ltd.


The next evolution in connecting with AGRIS Co-operative's owners and customers is through a strategic planning process called the "AGRIS Digital Strategy." The strategy is a thoughtful and purpose-driven focus across the company. The end goal is to make it easy and transparent for customers to share their farm-generated data with AGRIS, and AGRIS sharing back valuable crop plans, soil test analysis, and custom application maps to the originating farmer who owns that data.

In essence, this is the next step in our goal to provide technology and innovation focused on our customers' success.

AGRIS launched the myFS™ Solution Centre dashboard earlier this year. The release of myFS includes new features to complement customer account information and the activities they generate with AGRIS. It supports the sharing of information in a digital and robust mobile environment that is accessible whenever and wherever it's needed. AGRIS myFS connects customers with actionable plans, knowledge and technology that is needed to manage the farming operation. Online accessibility for a range of services including access to account information, farm, field maps, crop planning, plant food prescriptions and crop protection recommendations, as-applied maps when custom application services are performed, including a notification service of when those jobs are completed.

The next step is to implement more tools to facilitate the sharing of farm-generated data even easier. Sharing planter maps, sprayer maps and yield maps can improve the agronomy experience even more. Utilizing Climate FieldView™ to connect equipment and capture field activities will help make the transfer of important information relatively seamless. The Climate FieldView platform connects with a range of equipment from various manufacturers to collect and share machine data with AGRIS' crop specialists. In addition to collecting data, the system supports the sharing and exchange of scouting information and timely in-season management tips supported by frequently acquired satellite imagery. FieldView supports tracking AGRIS MiField test plots and a host of other treatments right through to harvest.

The best part of Climate FieldView is that it's economical. The digital platform is provided at no cost to the customer when they are a Bayer Value Customer (some equipment charges do apply).

To link FieldView with AGRIS myFS requires a partnership in data exchange. AGRIS can load customer field boundaries into FieldView. This begins the sharing process and once field boundaries are set up customers can begin to take advantage of all the features the platform offers. Even greater value is obtained when appropriate files are shared with AGRIS, which in turn supports accessing the data in myFS. Once shared, additional analytics are possible.

Access to yield maps supports a soil health and environmental 4R Nutrient Stewardship approach by applying crop removal nutrient levels to match actual yields rather than using a field average.

Our Digital Strategy is built upon systems that are compatible with a range of other digital platforms for sharing data, such as but are not limited to, John Deere Operation Center, Case IH AFS, Ag Leader and others.

AGRIS crop specialists and support team will be making contact with customers throughout the season to help "Make the Connection.
