The tool also is designed to ensure different systems developed in the market can connect to each other to provide growers with needed data, according to a news release.
The seed tool also includes several new features designed to streamline and optimize seed selection, including satellite imagery for crop diagnostics and a tool that expedites field-by-field hybrid decisions.
“Our goal from the start with digitizing seed selection has been to support growers from the ground up – combining the expertise of our retailers and agronomists with data-driven technology,” Justin Welch, Syngenta digital product manager, said in the release. “By looking at what data and science are saying through an unbiased, fact-based lens, innovations like the Cropwise Seed Selector are helping farmers make better business and agronomic decisions.”
An archive of agronomic information allows users to tailor their seed portfolio based on geographic location, soil productivity, precipitation levels, historic crop stress, and performance of products by year and region. Users are able to adjust these factors to understand how a specific corn hybrid or soybean variety would perform under an array of different conditions — information critical to making confident seed selections.
The platform is adaptable, allowing retailers and farmers to plan for weather volatility, soil variability and planting specifications by being able to see real results from real places. When using the Cropwise Seed Selector, users benefit from:
• An unbiased assessment of NK product performance.
• Centralized access to product information and characteristics.
• Customized recommendations and comparisons specific to each field.
• Deepened customer connectivity.
• Added value through a no-cost online system.
