Syngenta Partners with Premier Crop Systems

Syngenta and Premier Crop Systems, LLC, announce a commercial partnership to bring growers customized, variable-cost-per-bushel analysis maps – the first of this kind.

“We’re providing growers research at the speed of farming,” said Aaron Deardorff, head of digital agriculture solutions at Syngenta. “Providing valuable tools to help growers turn data into knowledge is a priority for Syngenta and Premier.”

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 needed 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.

“Growers are looking for ways to get more out of everything they track,” said Stelford. “Growers are able to enter information into Land.db and get within-field cost of production information on precise maps through this integration. Premier’s capabilities also provide growers and their advisors with insights to build on their local agronomic knowledge and recommendations, using variable-rate technology.”

The maps demonstrate profitability per field from a cost-per-bushel perspective. Growers will also have access to specific farm prescriptions and the ability to run their own localized, on-farm trials, provided by Premier through their retailers.

“Syngenta is committed to helping growers feed the world,” Deardorff said. “We began using digital agriculture solutions to support that commitment more than 15 years ago, when the AgriEdge Excelsior program was started. Our broadened offers and integrations, like this collaboration with Premier Crop Systems, demonstrate that we are a partner to growers and a leader in the digital agriculture space.”

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.
