AgriEdge from Syngenta integrates Simplot Advisor recommendation tool


GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, Nov. 22, 2019 – Syngenta and Simplot Grower Solutions are working together to increase efficiencies for growers through software integration. Growers can now pull recommendations from Simplot’s centralized agronomic data hub, Simplot Advisor®, and insert them directly into the Land.db® software provided with AgriEdge®, Syngenta’s whole-farm management system.

This integration is set up through a grower account within Simplot Advisor to protect the data privacy of individual growers, working with their advisors or retail partners, and reduces the burden of time spent on data entry via Simplot Advisor. Now growers who use Simplot Advisor can pull that agronomic recommendation data directly into Land.db to convert to work orders and records. Using this technology may help result in increased efficiencies from planning through harvest.

“We’re happy to announce this integration with Simplot Advisor to help empower our growers,” said Shane Taylor, marketing manager of Digital Ag Solutions at Syngenta. “We strive daily to find ways to save our growers time in their operations and become more profitable.”
Growers interested in this new integration should contact their Syngenta representative or visit www.AgriEdge.com for more information.
