Climate Corporation discontinued its data sharing partnership with Tillable, planned to go live in the spring of 2020. Tillable sought to enable growers to share Climate's FieldView agriculture data to support land investments. The decision came after growers publicized claims that Tillable solicited them with specific knowledge from FieldView. Evidence supporting this claim is lacking, and Tillable states that any data sharing would have been completely voluntary, but the decision points to weak trust existing in agriculture over data sharing. Clients should take this unfortunate event to heart. Relationships remain key in agriculture, and digital transformation must enable their development through transparency and pain point reduction.
