According to a recent company news release, John Deere has partnered with Dow AgroSciences LLC, to develop approaches and technology that will deliver data and provide information to farmers that will assist in the execution of site-specific applications to improve yields and manage costs.
Dow AgroSciences has specifically signed on with Deere to leverage the MyJohnDeere platform and cloud-based technologies for future delivery of customized prescriptions tailored to the farmer’s growing environment. As a result of this partnership, Dow AgroSciences’ customers will have the ability to bring together production information with analysis from company experts and channel partners. The collaboration will enable specific product recommendations from a broad portfolio of corn hybrids.
Larry Robertson, global corn project leader, Dow AgroSciences, says in the release, "This collaboration is part of our strategy to deliver innovative Dow AgroSciences solutions tailored to each farmer's specific environment. Exploring the promise of precision product placement is important to our customers and we are pleased to work with John Deere on approaches that ensure the best product and management tools are put to use on each acre."
MyJohnDeere is a comprehensive information platform designed to help agricultural producers improve yields and overall efficiency through the management of equipment data, production data and farm operations within one interface. This partnership with Dow AgroSciences will likely assist farmers in the execution of applications on an individual basis to improve yields and reduce overall costs.
