Trimble announced that it is consolidating three of its agriculture software products—Connected Farm, Farm Works Software and Agri-Data solutions—into one powerful farm data management platform: Trimble Ag Software. This all-in-one tool offers customers a complete desktop, web-based and mobile-enabled agricultural software solution that simplifies farm data management to drive productivity, profitability and sustainability for farmers, crop advisors, ag retailers and food processors.
Farmers today are under increasing pressure to produce higher yields, while soft commodity prices are forcing them to lower costs. In order to achieve this, farmers are looking at a variety of options including their farm management software to help make informed, timely decisions that save money on inputs and create greater efficiencies on the farm. Trimble Ag Software offers an integrated desktop, online and mobile solution to assist farmers in viewing recommendations from their trusted advisors and making quick adjustments when necessary, viewing historical application records and tracking fleet locations with status updates. This kind of real-time management gives farmers the power to make smarter data-driven decisions.
Amid the current shift toward precision agriculture practices, farmers are also running into hurdles with technology integration. When farmers mix precision ag hardware and software with third-party vendors, the results can lead to lost time due to data re-entry, USB data transfer or multiple support entities. To combat these barriers, Trimble Ag Software seamlessly integrates with its hardware solutions as well as with other third-party manufacturers using Trimble’s API. By using one technology platform, supported by a global Trimble Vantage™ distribution network, farm data can now flow wirelessly across the entire farm and to trusted advisors. This provides timely crop input recommendations and eliminates data re-entry, saving time and reducing potential errors.
