(NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced that QBE NAU Crop Insurance has signed a multi-year subscription agreement for Iteris' ClearAg weather, wind and soil data plus visualization component technology to improve crop reporting and reduce crop loss.

"We're always looking to help our agents be industry leaders in technology and thanks to ClearAg our agents have a new set of tools to offer their farmers," said Michael Deal, chief marketing & technology officer at QBE NAU. "We chose ClearAg because they can deliver science-based agronomic insight tools that draw on a vast store of weather, wind and soil data combined with cutting-edge visualizations. ClearAg tools will help our agents and their farmers more quickly understand crop health conditions to reduce loss risk and be more productive in their fields."

QBE NAU will use ClearAg environmental data and agronomic visualization technology to provide critical field-level insights so that their agents and farmer customers can proactively mitigate risk and prevent crop loss.

"Accurately predicting near-term weather and soil conditions is a scientifically proven approach to reducing crop loss," said Tom Blair, senior vice president at Iteris. "As a forward-thinking AIP, QBE NAU is making a strategic investment in environmental data analytics that will help the thousands of agents and tens of thousands of farmers they serve make better-informed decisions for crop health. Putting science-based agronomic insights into the hands of the agents and farmers highlights QBE NAU's leadership as an AIP pioneer."
