Recently Ag Leader announced an Application Program Interface (API) for our AgFiniti® Cloud Based Platform. This has been quoted as “a big step forward toward broader software connectivity” by one online publication. This is indeed an exciting step for Ag Leader!
For you as a grower…what the heck does this mean? It means you can use the display you want and your trusted advisors can use the software they’re accustomed to.
When I hear the term “API” I hear things like: connectivity, efficiency and seamlessness. This means that, as a grower, I can send as-applied data to my agronomist or any other trusted advisor and they can access it, regardless of what software they use. It’s a two-way street, so if they generate a prescription file for my Ag Leader display, I can wirelessly access that file through AgFiniti.
Not being tied to a single software package opens the doors for connectivity in our industry. Something our growers have been asking for, for a long time now. An API is the first big step to making this happen.
As word of the AgFiniti API spreads, Ag Leader will connect to more and more 3rd party companies. Making it even easier for you, as a grower, to do your job.
