For years, farmers have had to navigate a complex landscape of digital tools to harness the power of their on-farm data. Corteva Agriscience and John Deere have announced a partnership to make it easier for farmers to access Corteva’s agronomic recommendations through the John Deere Operations Center.
This partnership combines the digital and onboard capabilities of John Deere with the agronomic expertise and analysis of Corteva. The result is the delivery of precise, customized, agronomic insights to:
- equipment, via John Deere Precision Ag technology;
- Pioneer sales representatives, for providing best-in-class agronomic support; and
- farmers, for improved productivity and sustainability.
“We are focused on making it as easy as possible for farmers to unlock even more value through data-driven, scientific recommendations, based on the unique characteristics of their farm. This partnership does exactly that,” said Brian Lutz, vice president of agricultural solutions, Corteva. “As a technology company dedicated to putting the best, most innovative tools in the hands of farmers, this partnership, by setting a new standard for the industry, is an exciting next step both for farmers and our companies. We’re pleased to be able to combine Corteva’s cutting-edge science with John Deere’s technology stack to simplify the last mile of execution in the field.”
“The future of farming will be enabled by the combination of data-driven insights and science-based agronomic recommendations that are precisely executed by connected and increasingly intelligent machines,” said Doug Sauder, director, product management and user experience at John Deere. “Achieving the ambitious goals for providing food, fuel, and shelter for an increasing global population necessitates the entire industry work better together to ensure we are doing everything we can to help farmers optimize how they plan and execute in the field with the best products. We are excited to work with Corteva to provide a seamless experience for our mutual customers and help them garner more value from their farm data.”
Pilot programs will begin in the spring across the United States and expand to Canada in the future. These pilots are the foundation for a strategic, multi-year partnership, leveraging the companies’ respective areas of expertise to develop and deploy digital solutions that support farmers and their pursuit of more efficient, productive and sustainable farms.
