Tractor Time by Agrible® now boasts even more accurate field workability status and soil temperature predictions

Tractor Time now boasts even more accurate field workability status and soil temperature predictions, especially for your no-till and minimum-till fields. While there are various economic and environmental advantages to conservation till systems, we recognize the challenges that arise when managing such fields.

Today we're highlighting Agrible's Hail Events: Alerts that notify you when one of your fields has been hit by hail.

Hail Events provide post-event email alerts of hail that has fallen on a field that was added to your Agrible account. Hail Events are triggered at the field-specific level, and provide the probability of the hail event, the size of the hail stones, the density pattern of the hail, the duration of the hail event, and what the current crop growth stage is for the crop.

Agrible® Joins Cool Farm Alliance to Bring Agricultural Sustainability Worldwide

Cool Farm Tool Adds Depth to Agrible’s Predictive Analytics Platform to Help Growers Make the Best Decisions Possible and Improve Productivity Globally

Champaign, Ill., February 20, 2018- In a move designed to enhance its services on a global scale, Agrible has partnered with Cool Farm Alliance (CFA) to bring Agrible’s Sustainable Sourcing platform to more growers around the world.

"Agrible is laying the foundation for the next generation of agricultural systems and technologies with partners like CFA to make farmers around the world more productive, profitable, and efficient. Access to globally-scalable services and technology to help farmers make more informed decisions is our passion and commitment,” said Jeff Peters, Agrible’s VP of Sustainability.

The challenge agriculture has ahead is increasing production while optimizing natural resource use. The goal of CFA’s Cool Farm Tool (CFT) is to enable millions of growers across the globe to make on-farm decisions using management options that reduce their environmental impact and improve their sustainability.

"We are excited to announce Agrible's membership in CFA. Our members see integration of the CFT with farm management software as a key enabler for scaling sustainability measurement and management in their supply chains, and we're delighted to start this process with Agrible,” said Simon Miller, General Manager at Cool Farm Alliance.  

"This collaboration will enable reporting of The Sustainability Consortium (TSC) Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and is a big step forward in mobilizing data from farm to retail. Agrible and CFA are important partners in TSC’s commitment to solve for farm data connectivity and interoperability along supply chains. This addition to the Agrible platform will enable growers to have easy and flexible sustainability reporting of farm metrics to their customers and ultimately to TSC’s retail KPI’s, a win-win,” said Christy Slay, Ph.D., Director, Research at The Sustainability Consortium.

Agrible’s platform brings real-time agronomy to the farm by forecasting agronomics, yields, and nutrient requirements in real-time. Growers can finally get in front of production by making profitable and sustainable decisions at the same time. This better understanding of agronomy promotes the most efficient and profitable ways to grow crops on the farm.

“We call the linking of our real-time agronomics with sustainability systems like the CFT, real-time sustainability- a first in agriculture. Agrible’s platform is the only platform to be able to offer this new science to growers. We are also excited to offer this to more growers for more crops across the world,” said Agrible’s Chief Science Officer, Paul S. Miller, Ph.D.

Adding the Cool Farm Alliance sustainability metrics to Agrible’s predictive analytics and service recommendations including early alert systems for nutrient and disease management helps in the larger commitment to ensure the sustainability of agriculture, globally. Agrible has sustainably sourced 50 million bushels of grain with their platform and is fast approaching 1 million acres, and currently has over 13,000 users across 6 different countries who will benefit from this global partnership.

Workshops, weather, and what’s coming up with Eric Snodgrass.

Given Eric Snodgrass’ extensive experience as a global weather expert, he was a perfect fit to speak at the recent InfoAg conference. As Principal Atmospheric Scientist at Agrible, Eric provides weather forecast solutions for global agriculture, which give ag users insights to make operational decisions weeks in advance. Eric held a workshop called, “Weather Data & Tools, Growing Season Weather Risks in Agriculture.” We wanted to hear more about this workshop and sat down with Eric to hear his thoughts.
