Amazone and FieldView, Bayer's platform for digital agriculture, recently announced they are starting a strategic collaboration with the aim of further promoting and simplifying the adaptation of smart farming practices. This collaboration aims to improve connectivity and create a link between FieldView's advanced digital tools and Amazone's precision machinery.

Basic compatibility with Amazone crop protection sprayers and fertilizer spreaders was already in place in the past. Together the companies worked on improving the documentation for variable fertilizer rates on the basis of application maps. This way, if provided, Amazone fertilizer spreaders can apply a different application rate on the left and right side when processing application maps. In FieldView, the recording with double precision is now also possible thanks to the co-operation with Amazone.

Most recently, both partners dealt with Amazone's seed drill technology. In particular, machines that can simultaneously apply seed, fertilizer and other inputs from different tanks. In one of the next FieldView Cab App versions, the newly created compatibility for Amazone seed drills will be made available to all customers. This further development will enable FieldView to fully capture all products applied during seeding and use them as a basis for insight and analysis.

In the future, both partners intend to capture additional data layers, in addition to increasing precision and quality of the data collected. For example, captured weather data from Amazone machines would allow to make better decisions immediately during field work, or afterwards when assessing the quality of work
