DuPont Pioneer launches new software for forage growers

DuPont Pioneer Published on 10 July 2013

DuPont Pioneer has launched a new Web-based field management tool, Pioneer Field360 Select software. The new subscription service combines field-by-field data with real-time agronomic and weather information to help growers make informed management decisions, according to the company.

With a subscription, growers can transform farm data into timely and actionable information. The product offers multiple digital tools for monitoring and predicting field progress and growth stage, plus interactive field maps.

Growers can now get substantial information about a field without ever setting foot on the ground.


The program is backed by soil, weather, and precipitation data spanning many decades. It is also supported by Pioneer Agronomy Sciences data trials to determine growth stages of company brand corn hybrids.

When used with the compatible app, a grower can take notes and photos with GPS tags to track field-by-field agronomic status, according to the company. The app gives growers the option to share information in real time with agronomists and sales professionals.

The software runs on any Web-accessible electronic device and is compatible with data cards from most planting and harvest monitor systems.  FG
