Trimble has announced it is consolidating three of its agriculture software products — Connected Farm, Farm Works Software, and Agri-Data Solutions — into one farm data management platform: Trimble Ag Software. This tool offers customers a desktop, web-based, and mobile-enabled agricultural software solution designed to simplify farm data management.

Growers today are under increasing pressure to produce higher yields, while soft commodity prices are forcing them to lower costs. In order to achieve this, farmers are looking at a variety of options including their farm management software to help make timely decisions that save money on inputs and create greater efficiencies on the farm. Trimble Ag Software offers an integrated desktop, online, and mobile solution to assist farmers in viewing recommendations from their advisors and making quick adjustments when necessary, viewing historical application records, and tracking fleet locations with status updates.

“In the consumer smartphone market, people are looking for hardware and software that works well together and makes life easier — the same is true for farmers,” said Benjamin Allen, Enterprise Solutions Manager for Trimble’s Agriculture Division. “Agricultural technology can be very complex, and farmers are adopting solutions that ease data transfer and provide enhanced mobile functionality.”

According to J.R. Simplot Company, Trimble Ag Software is an ideal solution. “Trimble understands our world, and that is very important to us,” said Craig Holcombe, Senior Director of Procurement of J.R. Simplot Company’s North American Food Group. “Today, people are asking, ‘What is the story behind our food?’ and ‘Where is our food coming from?’ Tracking information all the way back to the farm and the agronomic practices used by the farmer is an opportunity to provide our customers with that information.”
