Monsanto’s Key Contributions to Precision Agriculture

By Kaitlyn Nelson


Monsanto the seed company

Monsanto, the seed company?

Double yields by 2030

Three focus areas:

Breeding

Biotechnology

Agronomics

Integrated Farming Systems

Precision Planting

FieldScripts


Integrated farming systems

Integrated Farming Systems

Combines genetics and equipment technology to maximize yields


Monsanto s key contributions to precision agriculture

Integrated Farming Systems


Step 1 precision planting

Step 1: Precision Planting

  • Acquired May 2012

  • Independent subsidiary of Monsanto

  • Integral part of the Integrated Farming Systems

  • Products

    • Keeton Seed Firmer

    • WaveVision

    • 20/20 SeedSense Monitor

    • FieldView app for iPad


20 20 seedsense monitor

20/20 SeedSense Monitor

  • Correct hidden mechanical problems

  • Adjust meters, vacuum pressure, transmissions and speed

  • Improve productivity with accuracy at higher speeds

  • Adjust down force


Fieldview for ipad

FieldViewfor iPad

  • Real time, row-by-row maps of planter performance

  • Connects straight to 20/20 SeedSense monitor

  • FieldView Plus adds sharing capabilties


Step 2 fieldscripts

Step 2: FieldScripts

  • First product from IFS platform

  • Creates yield management zone map based on yield history & fertility test

  • Selects best hybrid based on map & a proprietary algorithm

  • Prescribes variable rate seeding based on field & hybrid


Fieldscripts yield data

FieldScripts: Yield Data

  • Focusing on plant density – combining row spacing & plant population

  • 40 hybrids at 5 populations from 23,000 ppa to 43,000 ppa & 2 row spacings, 20” & 30” on 60 sites, varying in yield potential


Fieldscripts equipment

FieldScripts: Equipment

  • 20/20 SeedSense monitor & planter control system

  • FieldView app

  • Integration with other companies in the future


Fieldscripts how to get them

FieldScripts: How to Get Them

  • On-farm trials in 2013 in Indiana, Illinois, Iowa & Minnesota

  • Wide release to come in 2014

  • DeKalb dealers provide technical support & act as an advisor to each grower


The future for ifs

The Future for IFS

  • Beginning stages

  • Variable rate NPK based on management zones

  • In-season fertility & disease management

  • Yield monitoring advances


Monsanto s key contributions to precision agriculture

“Science and the world’s best genetics married to the world’s best planter technology. That’s going to be the key to success.”-Gregg SauderFounder of Precision Planting
