Farm Journal logo

 Raven Industries has announced a new Slingshot API implementation with ZedX, Inc., a developer of IT products and services for the agricultural and environmental industries. The partnership will allow the user’s Slingshot data to be transmitted wirelessly from the field using the ZedX AgFleet software. This allows data to move seamlessly between a user’s machines and his or her office.

Paul Welbig, director of Slingshot operations for Raven, says that ag retailers and farmers should realize greater efficiencies in their management processes because they will have the ability to create and transfer controller files and also take advantage of remote file transfer and support.

"This new partnership is a great example of how barriers are breaking down in the agricultural industry in order for growers and ag retailers to share data in an easy and positive manner," Welbig says. ZedX touts itself as providing open-source solutions and compatibility with other data-management software.

Brian Antonucci, chief operating officer at ZedX, says the partnership should bring customers a competitive advantage in the field.

"With the accuracy of AgFleet’s product suite paired with Raven’s Slingshot, your farm will have the most accurate applied acres in the business," he says.
