Beck’s Offers New Options for Seamless Data Transfer


Beck’s is pleased to announce improved data flow and connectivity options with its secure, web-based precision ag tool, FARMserver. By offering farmers the capability to connect their MyJohnDeere, Raven SlingShot and/or Precision Planting Field View accounts directly with their FARMserver account, users will have the ability to seamlessly transfer data between their FARMserver account and their planting or harvesting equipment.

“Since the inception of FARMserver, we have worked hard to deliver a product that is not only farmer friendly and easy-to-use, but that is compatible with all colors and brands of equipment,” says Scott Beck, president of Beck’s. “We recognized data connectivity and transfer are some of the biggest obstacles for farming operations. Our partnership with these companies enhances the user experience for our customers.”

Beck’s FARMserver team identified one of the major challenges with precision farming is the process of manually transferring agronomic data between equipment monitors and a precision ag data platform. With their FARMserver technology, Beck’s has been at the forefront of data management, allowing farmers to store raw data and process it into a readable and actionable form. Beck’s has worked in conjunction with these companies to offer farmers the ability to use and apply their data more efficiently.

Once users have an established connection between FARMserver and one or all of these data transfer platforms, their application, planting, and harvest data will flow seamlessly with the FARMserver technology. Data from the provider will be automatically transferred to the corresponding FARMserver account daily, creating a seamless transfer.

Beck’s has also partnered with SanDisk in an effort to provide farmers an additional option for transferring data. As one of the first agricultural companies to receive approval from SanDisk their iXpand Lightning USB is now compatible with the FARMserver technology and can be used with any monitor that accepts a USB drive. Users can now simply plug the Lightning USB drive into their phone or iPad, open the FARMserver iOS app and select the upload button and seamlessly transfer data with the click of a button.

“We will continue to seek out new and innovative ways to help farmers succeed,” says Craig Rogers, Beck’s precision farming lead. “By providing these new options for farmers to transfer their data, it has never been easier to take advantage of all the precision farming tools that FARMserver offers.”
