Syngenta and Lindsay Corporation Thursday announced an agreement to provide corn farmers with access to products, technology, expertise, analysis, automation and service to allow water to be efficiently used in irrigated programs.
The goal of the collaboration is to unleash the power of pivots by taking a holistic, integrated look at water use efficiency in irrigated corn.
"Although weather and water are variable, corn growers can mitigate risk and achieve higher yield potential in water-stressed situations through a combination of technologies, products and services," said David Morgan, North America regional director for Syngenta.
He noted the company is pleased to be working with Lindsay to deliver a complete platform custom-designed to help farmers grow more corn with less water.
The approach will include helping growers identify the most critical limiting variables and putting a program in place to better measure, analyze, track and predict their impact in real time.
Integrating the Growsmart soil and weather sensors into the FieldNET monitoring and control platform creates a plug-and-play solution that is easy to use, yet very powerful, Lindsay officials said.
