The Climate Corporation unveils R&D pipeline

The Climate Corporation, a subsidiary of Monsanto, unveiled for the first time more than 35 projects in its research and development pipeline. The company also announced plans to expand its Climate FieldView digital agriculture platform into new international geographies over the next few years. Climate’s announcement follows Monsanto’s annual R&D pipeline update.

“The digital ag industry continues to accelerate rapidly as more farmers experience the value data-driven digital tools can bring their operations,” said Mike Stern, chief executive officer for The Climate Corporation. “At Climate, constant innovation has been paramount to the delivery of our Climate FieldView platform that’s helping thousands of farmers unlock the value of their field data to enhance productivity. Our commitment to innovation is reflected in the breadth and depth of our R&D pipeline, and we will continue to expand the geographic availability of our tools to deliver new digital technologies to farmers across the globe.”

The science behind the company’s widely adopted Climate FieldView platform leverages data from the soil, field and atmosphere to help farmers better understand field variability and customize their agronomic practices to get the most out of every acre.

“There’s a tremendous opportunity for farmers to maximize their yield potential by tailoring their management practices to address field variability,” said Sam Eathington, chief scientist for The Climate Corporation. “Farming at the zone level is the new reality. Climate is already delivering advanced seed scripting and zone-level nitrogen monitoring capabilities, and our robust research pipeline ensures we will continue to provide farmers actionable insights to help them operate more efficiently and sustainably, while supporting all of the key decisions they have to make each year to optimize yield.”
