EWR connects with John Deere API
Collierville, TN – EWR is now connected with John Deere Operations Center through John Deere’s API services. This connection will allow EWR to enhance their eCotton Gin cotton software for the 2017 cotton crop to download and import Harvest Identification (ID) information from Operations Center to the gin software in a simple and straight-forward manner.
Richard “Rich” Lindsey, Jr. of Cherokee Gin and Cotton Company in Centre Alabama states:
“This technology will significantly improve module management for producers and ginners alike. John Deere’s Harvest ID uses RFID technology to track vital information enhancing a producer’s ability to trace yield, quality, and variety information back to a specific location in the field. It also allows gins to receive real-time data regarding modules that are in the field and specific characteristics about the module such as weight and moisture content that will help ginners manage their inventory and provide an enhanced service to the producer. This technology also has the potential to eliminate the need to manually tag modules further simplifying the harvesting process.”
Todd Waters, General Manager of Coastal Carolina Gin in Pantego, North Carolina indicates: “The data transfer between John Deere and EWR will help eliminate any production information being entered into the gin program incorrectly and will also help automate the transfer of production information to the gin via Operations Center.
EWR Director of Operations Tom McCune commented: “Connecting the eCotton Gin software to Operations Center allows our gins to better serve the needs of their producers by receiving the information regarding the round module in a timely and efficient manner while the module is in the field.”
