Growers Can Maximize Harvest Data with Pioneer FIT® Services

Field-by-field analysis to maximize productivity for profitable, informed management decisions

DES MOINES, Iowa, Sept. 24, 2012 - With harvest underway, Pioneer sales professionals are providing Pioneer FIT® mapping services to growers from data collected from their yield monitor and GPS receiver. By using the value-added precision agriculture tools offered through Pioneer FIT Services, growers can take advantage of comprehensive mapping and planning services to help them make the best planting and management decisions for next season.   

The historical, multi-year yield maps provided by FIT® Studio help growers make informed decisions about management practices such as variable rate seeding, while also providing key insights into the best field-by-field plans for their farm. With this information, sales professionals can help growers compare and contrast years, create management zones, and remove uncharacteristic growing seasons from their analysis. 

"Pioneer FIT Services work well because of the combination of local knowledge and relationships shared between Pioneer sales professionals and growers," says John Chism, DuPont Pioneer services and implementation manager. "Our team understands what is happening at the local level and is ready to help growers make the best decisions for their farm."

"Our local sales professionals regularly walk growers' fields and work with them throughout the year. In turn, Pioneer sales professional provides growers with detailed field-by-field plans and analysis to help them make the best management decisions for future seasons."
