Syngenta and says there’s nothing like this currently on the market: a customized, variable-cost-per-bushel analysis maps that will better turn data into knowledge. The two companies just announced a partnership to help bring this technology to growers.
Premier, an early developer of digital agriculture tools, currently provides data-driven agronomic recommendations for millions of acres of farmland. Its newest product, Enhanced Learning Blocks, enables the automation of large-scale, on-farm, replicated trials. By integrating products like this with the Syngenta AgriEdge Excelsior program, Syngenta and Premier are giving growers reliable tools to make data-driven decisions.
“The software integration provides growers an opportunity to understand how their cost of production varies within each of their fields,” said Mark Stelford, general manager at Premier Crop Systems. “As growers face tight margins, these insights will help optimize inputs and maximize yield, and improve return on investment.”
AgriEdge Excelsior from Syngenta is a whole-farm management program that helps growers increase and sustain their return on investment. It delivers trusted on-farm service, innovative products and the exclusive Land.db software.
Land.db gives growers access to financial data, while Premier offers field-level productivity data. In combination, growers can review their within-field cost per bushel on blocks as small as 60 feet, and analyze up to 15 years of historical yield data. Field-relative yield maps will help growers identify opportunities to leverage their equipment’s variable-rate capabilities.
Currently, this integration is available to corn, soybean and wheat growers in the Midwest, with plans to expand in geography and crops. Growers interested in this offer should contact their retailer or local AgriEdge specialist.
