This is the best time of year to put your data to the test, says Nathan Paul, DuPont Pioneer services applications manager. With Pioneer Field360, farmers can review field-level information to make better decisions, he says.
"Understanding information at the field level and soil-type level is critical," Paul explains.
For example, farmers can use as-planted maps and harvest data to make hybrid comparisons and see which management decisions did or didn’t pay off.
"With this information, growers are also able to see how soil types, fungicide application timing, hybrid selection and many more items impacted their overall crop performance," he says. "It allows them to determine a field’s ideal combination for the following year."
Subscribers of Pioneer Field360 Select software allow their sales professional to combine historical data and perform multiyear analysis for customized field management throughout the season. For more information, visit www.pioneer.com/360.
