CONSUS, a research partnership between University College Dublin (UCD) and Origin Enterprises, has selected Iteris ClearAg environmental intelligence to integrate with its crop modelling platform.

As per terms of the deal, ClearAg will offer location-specific environmental intelligence to CONSUS, a five-year research programme promoted by Science Foundation Ireland.

CONSUS researchers will apply ClearAg’s environmental intelligence to create advanced crop models

CONSUS researchers will apply ClearAg’s environmental intelligence to create crop models for the optimisation of sustainable crop performance for agronomists and growers across the globe.

ClearAg’s environmental intelligence along with CONSUS research and development platform will offer comprehensive and farm-specific weather data to agriscience researchers.

ClearAg’s location-specific current and historical weather, and its climatology and soil conditions information, will help CONSUS to develop scalable and integrated crop models to improve sustainable crop performance.

Iteris agriculture and weather analytics general manager and vice president Pierre-André Rebeyrat said: “Strategic partnerships between academia and industry, like UCD and Origin’s CONSUS programme, are vital in the pursuit of global crop sustainability.

“We are proud that ClearAg’s environmental intelligence will support the program’s research and ultimately help further the understanding of the interactions between field environmental conditions and sustainable crop production.”

Iteris, a provider of applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, collects, aggregates and analyses data on traffic, roads, weather, water, soil and crops to generate precise informatics for safer transportation and smarter farming.

The company offers its solutions to municipalities, government agencies, crop science companies, farmers and agronomists.
