“The warmer spring and pockets of heavy rain throughout the country are exactly the types of weather anomalies that Encirca℠ services can help growers navigate,” said Joe Foresman, director of Encirca℠ services Marketing and Product Development. “Encirca℠ services are delivered through a trusted local advisor who helps growers evaluate their planting and nutrient management plans – taking into account weather, soil types, land topography and historical trends – in order to maximize operational efficiency and grower profitability at the end of the season.”
Launched earlier this year, Encirca℠ Yield Stand helps growers tailor corn and soybean planting prescriptions to unique areas of each field, while also providing risk analysis and planting priority tools to help growers make real-time adjustments if weather or other factors interfere with spring planting. The Encirca℠ Yield Nitrogen Management Service works together with Encirca℠ Yield Stand to help growers differentially manage acres at a sub-field level or decision zone to improve productivity and control costs by applying varied rates of nitrogen fertilizer (N).
As growers begin early-season scouting, they are using the Encirca℠ View service to record, organize, and share crop observations. The notes are automatically geo-referenced and archived to track historical trends that inform decisions year-to-year. More than 15,000 notes and photos have been captured in Encirca℠ View this spring.
“More growers are getting first-hand experience with the value of our real-time, data-driven management services,” said Foresman. “We’ve seen strong adoption of our Encirca℠ Yield and Encirca℠ View platforms and look forward to expanding with additional services that help growers improve input management and work through production challenges in real-time, on every acre.”
