Bayer subsidiary teams up with QBE company to enhance crop insurance reporting

Bayer’s sustainable agriculture initiative is collaborating with a QBE insurance company to enhance the way farmers report crop insurance claims.

The Climate Corporation (a Bayer subsidiary) has partnered with NAU Country Insurance – one of the largest federal crop insurance providers in the US. The two have entered a platform partnership, allowing NAU to utilize The Climate Corporation’s Climate FieldView digital agriculture platform.

NAU Country’s mutual farmer customers and their insurance agents will be able to move planting and harvest data electronically into the NAU Country Precision Farming system via the collaboration, so that planting and production reports are completed and delivered faster.

“Through our partnership with NAU Country, we can deliver value for farmers and their agents by simplifying the annual task of crop insurance reporting,” said The Climate Corporation chief technology officer Mark Young in a statement. “We look forward to working with NAU Country to help bridge the gap between field data collection and reporting to create a more streamlined experience for our shared farmer customers.”

“By enabling farmers to use their data to streamline operation reporting, we are saving them time and reducing errors in the reporting process. Ultimately, this will provide farmers and their agents a more simplified reporting experience, eliminating the need for manual data entry,” added NAU Country chief marketing technology officer Michael Deal. “The opportunities for innovation of existing processes, as well as building out new ways to help farmers remain profitable in current market conditions is what makes our partnership with The Climate Corporation exciting.”

Last year, The Climate Corporation also entered a similar platform agreement with Farmers Mutual Hail Insurance.
