Update: A previous version of this story was titled "Climate Corp Offers Free Climate Pro Trial"; the company, however, is offering a "risk-free" trial. See details below.
The Climate Corporation on Wednesday announced that in addition to Climate Basic, the tools that capture critical farming and weather data for no fee, growers now have an opportunity for a risk-free trial offer of the advanced Climate Pro technologies.
Anthony Osborne, vice president of marketing for The Climate Corporation, says growers who try Climate Pro through Oct. 25 will have a satisfaction guarantee. If they are not satisfied with the product, they can cancel the service without obligation. Should they cancel Climate Pro, they will still be able to use Climate Basic for the growing season, he said.
Osborne said the company is seeking to remove barriers that growers may encounter as new technologies are introduced.
"Data science is an exciting new technology to be applied to agricultural production. Through data science, we can provide better insights and recommendations for farmers," he said. "Because every decision a farmer makes has an impact on their livelihood, we understand that farmers want to try new technologies before they fully adopt them. That's why we want farmers to experience Climate Pro, see the benefits from its value and integrate those insights into their farming operations throughout the entire growing season."
The company says Climate Pro helps to maximize yield and provide value by:
• Selecting the optimal planting date and relative maturity of fields
• Identifying subfield variability to identify areas for further investigation and variable rate application
• Anticipating, tracking and addressing nitrogen issues before they reduce yield
• Staying on top of pest and disease issues, and planning preventive and curative management
• Optimizing harvest date, yield, cost and grain moisture, and
• Tracking projected yield and revenue to inform capital expenditures, marketing and operational decision making
