Arable and Bayer Partner to Accelerate Agriculture’s Digital Transformation & Tailor Plant Genetics to In-field Conditions

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Arable and Bayer announced today a partnership to accelerate digital transformation in agriculture through the expanded use of Arable’s field-level sensing and monitoring platform, which collects real-time intelligence on weather, plant and soil conditions in a single solution. Together, Bayer and Arable aim to increase the understanding of how hyper-local weather conditions impact seed performance and to provide growers with top-performing products tailored to their specific location.

“Growers need a new generation of seed solutions that can keep up with a changing climate and fewer resources,” said Mike Graham, Head of Plant Breeding at Bayer’s Crop Science Division. “We are always looking for new ways to combine in-field performance data with our advanced trait technology. Leveraging Arable’s easy to use, accurate technology, we can further optimize our selection process and give growers the best traits for their unique environments.”

From microclimate trends and soil moisture levels to plant growth stages and disease indicators, Arable’s holistic view of field observations provides plant scientists, agronomists, and growers with the necessary tools to link decisions and outcomes, thus maximizing economic value. Its data platform synthesizes weather, plant, and soil metrics to enable strategic planning and measurable ROI through real-time, actionable insights on natural resource management at any scale.

“The future of agriculture will be tailored to meet the needs of individual growers and their respective fields,” said Jim Ethington, CEO of Arable. “Bayer has been leading the transformation of digital agriculture for the past decade and we are proud to partner with them to provide growers with solutions that are rooted in ground- truth data.”
