Free app will be one of many innovations on show at CropTec 2019
Specialist technical support for arable farmers and agronomists on the move is the aim of a new app set to launch at CropTec 2019 by Corteva Agriscience.
Free to download, the Corteva Arable App will contain information for users of the company’s crop protection and seed products.
Farmers and advisers can select the crop protection product they want to apply and the app will list the label rate for applications, tank mix compatibility and usage periods.
Users will be also be able to read up on the varieties and traits of maize and oilseed rape seeds available from Corteva’s Pioneer brand to enable the best possible management of the crop.
The company’s Kerb Weather Data service – used by scores of farmers in the UK – has been integrated into the app allowing farmers to check whether the soil conditions and weather forecast make for suitable spraying conditions for Kerb® Flo 500 and AstroKerb® products.
Nicola Perry, technical specialist at Corteva, said: “Our grassland app is hugely popular and we are now able to offer our arable customers the same detailed, technical support at their fingertips 24 hours a day.
“Our technical hotline continues to give advice on the phone but with this launch we are giving farmers another way of accessing the information they need, when they need it.”
The app is just one of the exciting developments from Corteva this year with an array of new products hitting the market and nearing launch.
Visitors to CropTec are invited to stand 1.61 for networking and hospitality and to enter a daily competition to win a 2019 Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1″ tablet. The winner’s name will be announced at 3pm on both days.
Corteva’s technical specialists will be available to discuss how to get the best out of every product, from cereal herbicides to oilseed rape including Belkar™ which is new to the market for 2019.
You will also have the chance to hear more about Corteva’s much-anticipated InatreqTM active fungicide, with a unique site of action offering robust control of septoria.
Farmers interested in Pioneer’s latest seed developments can hear about the qualities of high-yielding PT275, and PT279CL – the first Clearfield variety ever to make the Recommended List.
