Combines genetics and equipment technology to maximize yields

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
