Stay in the Know: Visit an Answer Plot Event

  • May 29, 2018
Partnerships are the cornerstone of all successful businesses and your farm is no exception. Every year we look forward to farmers, retailers and our agronomy experts gathering to share ideas at local Answer Plot® events. You’ll get the latest information directly from our agronomic team.    
 
Our goal is to offer timely, locally relevant topics that help increase your productivity and profitability. Here are some things we hope you take back to the farm.
 
Deeper insights. We talk a lot about data, and it’s true, we collect a lot of it. But we’re looking at new ways to analyze data for deeper insights that affect your farm. For example, instead of just testing for a fungicide yield response, we want to examine how a specific fungicide and hybrid work together.
 
Better forecasting. We’re striving to improve our ag technology tools. We use data from the Answer Plot locations to help us calibrate and fine-tune features within the R7® Tool. Our ultimate goal is to use data to be more predictive so that we can help you stay one step ahead of in-season challenges. When you visit an Answer Plot event this summer, you’ll learn how these tools fit with your management plans.
 
Timely information. Answer Plot events are designed to be educational, and we like to use current conditions to lead productive discussions. That means each event is structured a little differently, depending on what is happening in the field. Even if you’ve attended events before, you’ll learn something new, because as we collect and analyze more data, our insights become stronger.
 
Profitable practices. We want every dollar you spend to come back to you in the form of higher yield and better returns at the end of the season. Visit an Answer Plot event to learn what our research says about particular management practices and products. For example, we’re sharing optimal planting dates and populations based on specific scenarios. We’ll also help you nail down the best application windows for fungicide and nitrogen applications based on local research.
