Sentera and AgDNA Announce Ag Data Integration via the John Deere Operations Center

The Operations Center facilitates seamless integration of data between Sentera and AgDNA products

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sentera and AgDNA announce completion of API integration work that allows users to seamlessly share real-time in-season precision ag information using the John Deere Operations Center. Integration with the Operations Center helps Sentera and AgDNA customers make better decisions and drive optimal action, from sensor to on-field equipment. The digital insights delivered by the integrated capability help advisors and growers gather data, run analytics, manage protection and nutrition strategies, build management zones, and push prescriptions seamlessly to John Deere on-field equipment, all within the Operations Center.


Accurate Data, Improved Decisions
High-precision real-time sensor data is captured and analyzed with Sentera analytics, sensors, and software, then delivered to the Operations Center. The AgDNA system accesses the data to perform additional processing, combining Sentera data with other types of information already available within the Operations Center.

"Integration with AgDNA and the Operations Center lowers barriers to accessing high accuracy Sentera sensor data and analytics products, and provides better, faster inputs to the AgDNA product suite's own data analysis engine. The result is greater productivity and more accurate prescriptions," remarked Eric Taipale, Sentera CEO. "Together with John Deere and AgDNA, we continue to help our customers drive value back into their operations and positively impact their ROI."

Advancing Value
"Our goal at AgDNA is to help growers maximize profitability on every acre of their operation. By combining real-time sensor data from Sentera with in-field agronomic data from John Deere equipment, AgDNA is able to provide growers and their trusted advisors with a deeper understanding of crop performance throughout the season," said Paul Turner, AgDNA CEO. "Today with Sentera, the AgDNA platform is harnessing the power of cloud computing and AI to share, analyze and transfer high value agronomic insights to in-field equipment with ease to improve the grower's bottom line."

Equipment Efficiency
When meaningful agronomic data flows seamlessly to a broad set of analysis tools, the agronomic value and freedom of choice delivered to the customer expands. The Operations Center's APIs and data models are fundamental underlying technology that unlock the true value of on-field data. Data is delivered from a broad set of sensors and equipment, and the Operations Center facilitates organizing, locating, and delivering data to analytics tools, and delivery of a prescriptive action directly to the on-field equipment.

This latest ag-sharing technology is available now and may be accessed through any of one of the companies' software platforms. Get started today!

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
