How do we connect? 

The connection between CLAAS TELEMATICS and Climate FieldViewis seamless and easy to perform. Simply log in to your FieldView account on (e.g., desktop computer), select Settings in the top-right corner of the screen and choose Account from the dropdown menu, and then follow the steps described in the Integration Guide.

What data is shared? 

As of March 15, 2021, FieldView customers using CLAAS TELEMATICS can now access CLAAS-generated yield and grain moisture maps seamlessly through their FieldView account using the new API integration. 

What is the value? 

When a farmer or contractor connects their CLAAS TELEMATICS account to their FieldView account via the CLAAS API, the documented harvest values from the TELEMATICS system are retrieved and sent to the FieldView user’s inbox as posting proposals. From there, the customer can select the files they’d like to sync with their FieldView account and further process the complete field-related documentation in FieldView. With this connectivity, yield values and yield maps from a CLAAS combine harvester can be used in FieldView to generate site-specific planting prescriptions or fertilizer maps for the coming season, helping farmers increase their profitability, actively manage risk and save valuable time by gathering data and conducting analysis all in one place.
