Dow AgroSciences Tuesday announced it has signed on to use John Deere's MyJohnDeere platform and new cloud-based technologies to tailor prescriptions to growers' environments.
This agreement will help Dow AgroSciences' customers take full advantage of the company's products through placement of technology into specific environments based on a farmer's field conditions, the company said.
Bringing together production information with analysis from company experts will enable specific product recommendations from a broad portfolio of corn hybrids. This precision enables best management of inputs and the ability to monitor crop development, Dow said.
"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," says Larry Robertson, global corn project leader, Dow AgroSciences.
Pat Pinkston, John Deere's vice president of Technology and Information Solutions, said, "Dow AgroSciences and John Deere share the commitment to optimize producer returns while honoring the foundational principles of data management and stewardship."
John Deere announced in November that it would allow other companies to provide software and applications to interface with MyJohnDeere. The platform was first unveiled in 2012.
