New software helps growers manage field data

DuPont Published on 11 June 2013

Forage growers now have additional Web-based field management tools with new software released by DuPont Pioneer.

Pioneer Field360 Select software, a subscription service, combines field-by-field data with real-time agronomic and weather information to help growers make informed management decisions.

By using the software, growers can transform farm data into timely and actionable information, according to the company. It contains multiple digital tools for monitoring and predicting field progress and growth stage, and includes interactive field maps.

The program is backed by soil, weather and precipitation data spanning decades.

When used with the compatible app, a grower can take notes and photos with GPS tags to track field-by-field agronomic status.

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