Farmer and Retailer
With low commodity prices causing concerns this past fall, farmers are looking for ways to receive top returns on their input investments while getting optimal performance from each acre.

WinField has the proprietary tools to help you design an individualized prescription for every field based on this year’s insights.

1. TRUSTED ANSWER PLOT® DATA
With hundreds of replicated trials that include a wide range of products at nearly 200 locations nationwide, the Answer Plot® Program provides one of the industry’s most extensive data sets for use when planning. Based on sound scientific practices and meticulous attention to detail, Answer Plot® data is the basis for customized R7® Tool insights and recommendations that will help you identify the right input investment for each of your fields.

2. R7® TOOL INSIGHTS
Use the R7® Tool to help set realistic yield goals for next season. The R7® Tool allows you to see your fields like never before; viewing field maps with historical data, soil variability and other primary information. Based on each zone’s conditions and precise local Answer Plot® data, you can work with your regional agronomist to develop a customized plan for your operation, including population counts, and fertility and crop protection recommendations to increase potential return on investment.

For current R7® Tool users, you can evaluate the 2014 season with field response and profitability maps to help improve productivity potential and profitability potential next season.



3. CUSTOMIZED TOP 10 HYBRIDS
The Top 10 function within the R7® Tool helps you identify the top 10 best-performing hybrids for different locations within your fields. By matching soil type with Answer Plot® test results, your WinField agronomist can provide you with the right seed product options — including photos of root appearance and anticipated ear size for each hybrid — that have the best chance of success under current conditions.

4. PLANT NUTRITION INSIGHTS
This season’s tissue testing data and analysis with the NutriSolutions 360™ system provides a road map for plant nutrition planning in the coming season. Tissue testing data provides you with insights of how to correct plant nutrient deficiencies throughout the growing season, so your crops are able to reach their optimal yield potential next season.
