Using algorithms to define outcomes based on millions of data points from weather, soil, yield history and other factors that play into farming.</p> <p>But with all that predicting, there is bound to be some error. That&rsquo;s where the importance of measurement comes in&mdash;to give you an accurate picture of what is actually happening in your field.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/farm-industry-news-blog">Farm Industry News Blog</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://farmindustrynews.com/blog/crop-measurement-or-modeling-which-better" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://farmindustrynews.com/blog/crop-measurement-or-modeling-which-better#comments Variable rate Corn Variable rate application Farm Industry News Blog Mon, 24 Aug 2015 21:02:00 +0000 80031 at http://farmindustrynews.com What 640 Labs purchase means for Climate Corp http://farmindustrynews.com/blog/what-640-labs-purchase-means-climate-corp <div class="node-body blog-body">In a Business Wire news release issued Monday, Monsanto's weather modeling company Climate Corp announced its purchase of data analytics company 640 Labs, a tech start-up company in Chicago. 640 Labs has found a way to capture geo-referenced data from farm vehicles using a drive that plugs into the vehicle's diagnostics port.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/farm-industry-news-blog">Farm Industry News Blog</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://farmindustrynews.com/blog/what-640-labs-purchase-means-climate-corp" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://farmindustrynews.com/blog/what-640-labs-purchase-means-climate-corp#comments Variable rate Variable rate application Farm Industry News Blog Wed, 10 Dec 2014 19:38:00 +0000 74821 at http://farmindustrynews.com Monsanto announces acquisition of The Climate Corporation http://farmindustrynews.com/variable-rate/monsanto-announces-acquisition-climate-corporation <div class="node-body article-body">Climate Corporation's weather technology will be rolled into FieldScripts as a result of the acquisition. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://farmindustrynews.com/variable-rate/monsanto-announces-acquisition-climate-corporation" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://farmindustrynews.com/variable-rate/monsanto-announces-acquisition-climate-corporation#comments Variable rate Monsanto Wed, 02 Oct 2013 18:35:00 +0000 67922 at http://farmindustrynews.com Divergence Between Efficiency and Data Driven Technology Remains Wide http://farmindustrynews.com/variable-rate/divergence-between-efficiency-and-data-driven-technology-remains-wide <div class="field-byline"> Source: PrecisionAg </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p> Bruce Erickson, currently agronomic education manager with the American Society of Agronomy, has been heading up survey development and data compilation for the 16<sup><font size="2">th</font></sup> Retail Precision Adoption Survey.
