[SAN FRANCISCO] Feb. 28, 2014 — The Climate Corporation announced today, at the Community Classic convention and trade show in San Antonio, that in addition to Climate Basic™, the advanced tools that capture critical farming and weather data for no fee, growers now have an opportunity for a trial offer of the advanced Climate Pro™ technologies.
Anthony Osborne, Vice President of Marketing for Climate, stated that growers who try Climate Pro through October 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.
The rationale for making this trial offer, Osborne explained, is that Climate is committed to removing all possible 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. 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."
Climate's internal research shows these advisors and tools can increase farmers' profitability by over $100 an acre with full implementation and integration of the Climate Pro technology.
Climate Pro helps to maximize yield and provide value by:
Details on this offer can be found through Precision Planting dealers who sell 20/20 SeedSense® and Climate Pro certified partners, or by visiting precisionacre.precisionplanting.com.
