With all the of data now being generated from our machines and management systems/software programs, the ongoing goal is for producers to utilise the information to make better decisions and improve profitability. Ease of use is key, integrating multiple sources of data into one system is the ideal. DuPont Pioneer and John Deere are working together on this in the USA. See the article below.

“DES MOINES, Iowa, May 24, 2016 – DuPont Pioneer is offering an incentive for growers to try the EncircaSM Yield Nitrogen Management Service this summer to enhance their in-season nitrogen monitoring and management. The offer is free for growers who have enabled JDLink™ Connect to their John Deere Operations Center account in their newer model John Deere agricultural equipment and have approved connectivity with EncircaSM services.
“We believe growers who try this no-risk offer will see value of the data-driven insights from EncircaSM services and the John Deere Operations Center to make more informed decisions about critical crop inputs and equipment optimization,” said Eric Boeck, DuPont Pioneer marketing director for EncircaSM services. “Dynamic management of their operation through the growing season can help growers see more green at harvest through higher yields and lower input costs.”
The promotion includes a free nitrogen evaluation by an Encirca certified services agent of about 100 acres of a grower’s cropland, real-time computer monitoring of nitrogen levels on those acres through the 2016 growing season, and a one-on-one review of nitrogen plans with respect to final yields in the fall. EncircaSM services are driven by strong agronomic expertise, proprietary soil analysis and classifications, advanced crop modeling and an exclusive hyper-local weather network.
“John Deere is excited about this offer from Pioneer because it helps expand the value of JDLink™ Connect and the John Deere Operations Center beyond the convenience of data connectivity and the value of job optimization solutions,” said Kevin Very, business solutions manager, John Deere. “When growers opt to share their data with EncircaSM services and the John Deere Operations Center they open a whole new set of advanced management insights. EncircaSM services enable such insights as variable rate fertilizer prescriptions available as crops are being harvested. This means more efficient deployment of equipment and labor.”
“Adding the post-harvest review of nitrogen plans will help growers better understand what happened in their field through the season and why,” said Boeck. “Their EncircaSM certified services agent and Pioneer sales professional can then work with them to develop an ideal plan for the next growing season.”
Pioneer intends to deepen its promotional offer for 2017. From September to December 2016, growers who enroll 1,000 acres into Encirca℠ Yield services will receive a free year-long subscription to JDLink™ Connect and the John Deere Operations Center. Qualifying EncircaSM Yield services include the EncircaSM Yield Nitrogen Management Service, EncircaSM Yield Fertility Service (phosphorous, potassium and lime) and EncircaSM Yield Stand Service (variable rate seeding).
