Optimise seed selection process

The Cropwise Seed Selector introduces NK resellers and customers to several new features designed to streamline and optimise the seed selection process, including satellite imagery for crop diagnostics and a tool that expedites field-by-field hybrid decisions.

According to Syngenta, the tool builds on technology that combines artificial intelligence, two decades of agronomic information and a simple user interface.

Tailor seed portfolio with Syngenta Cropwise Seed Selector

An archive of agronomic information allows users of the Cropwise Seed Selector 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, says Syngenta.

Proactively plan for weather volatility, soil variability and planting specifications

Because the platform is adaptable, it allows retailers and farmers to proactively plan for weather volatility, soil variability and planting specifications by being able to see real results from real places. When employing the Cropwise Seed Selector, users can benefit from:

  • An unbiased assessment of NK product performance
  • Centralised access to product information and characteristics
  • Customised recommendations and comparisons specific to each field
  • Deepened customer connectivity
  • Added value through a no-cost online system

Taking out the guesswork

“The Cropwise Seed Selector helps growers make the tough decisions by simplifying the entire process and taking out a lot of the guesswork,” sais Justin Welch, Syngenta digital product manager.

“Through the tool, they can figure out which hybrids and varieties will work best and have the highest yield potential in their specific fields and individual growing conditions.”

In 2019 we interviewed Alexandra Brand, Chief Sustainability Officer of Syngenta. According to her, a whole new agricultural system is needed in order to make sure food production keeps being secured and increasingly sustainable. Read why.
