Observant® Lends Support to Farm Data Integration

Observant®, a leader in agricultural field data collection and automation, announced today the availability of its first implementation of an application program interface (API) based on Open Ag Data Alliance (OADA) standards. Observant’s OADA-based API provides secure access to data managed on the Observant Global™ cloud management platform. Field-level data collected by Observant’s award winning hardware can be accessed by other applications via the API, under the complete control of the grower.

to encourage the development of an entire ecosystem of interoperable tools to drive agricultural

“With a growing range of agricultural data management and analytics applications supporting OADA, growers are in complete control of how their data is shared,” Aaron Ault, of the Open Ag Data Alliance, said. “We have worked hard to make the standards powerful and practical to encourage the development of an entire ecosystem of interoperable tools to drive agricultural productivity.”

Interoperability is a vital part of getting the most from technology in agriculture

Observant now offers great added value to its customers by supporting OADA. “Interoperability is a vital part of getting the most from technology in agriculture. Observant is very clear that growers own their data, and our job is to securely collect and manage it on their behalf, only sharing what is specifically allowed by them,” J. Matthew Pryor, CEO of Observant, said. “The Open Ag Data Alliance provides an excellent framework for sharing that will foster the development of a marketplace of best-in-class solutions that growers can use to perform the tasks they need done. Observant makes the most reliable field hardware available, and we look forward to being part of an open and interoperable future for agriculture.”
