WinField Announces Enhanced 2014 Answer Plot Program

The 2014 Answer Plot Program by WinField is underway and will continue to build upon the program’s wide array of educational programming and trials. Each of the nearly 200 Answer Plot site locations feature new elements to reflect agronomic advances, including yield optimization comparisons, increased alfalfa demonstrations and QR code enhancements.

The Answer Plot Program lets farmers see firsthand how products perform in local fields, allowing them to make management decisions for their own operations with confidence. Through this program, farmers have yearlong access to national yield data as well as local, side-by-side product comparisons.

“The Answer Plot program was created to help farmers sort through all of the options and confidently choose the best solutions for their fields. In its 16th year of operation, thousands of trials and millions of data points provide farmers with trusted data,” said Kevin Eye, Vice President of Agronomy and Product Development at WinField. “We strive to help simplify the complex decisions that farmers make each season.”

New This Season

The 2014 program additions will continue to enrich one of the industry’s most extensive data sets, helping farmers get the most out of every acre:

  • Yield Optimization Demos – Test plots managed with WinField tools and products are compared to plots grown with typical management programs and inputs for a local area. The R7 Tool, Answer Plot data, NutriSolutions 360° program and MAX-IN plant nutrients are used to drive smart crop decisions throughout the season to help optimize yield potential.
  • More Alfalfa Demos – Demonstrations will increase this season, spreading into more key hay-producing areas of the country with a specific focus on Roundup Ready alfalfa products, and enhanced management with micronutrients and other production aids.
  • QR Codes – Quick response codes will be featured on demonstration and product signs, allowing Answer Plot Program attendees to access additional information on specific hybrids and varieties using their smartphones during plot visits.
  • Research Trial Enhancements – Many new and enhanced trials will add thousands of data points and insights to the Answer Plot data set. New trials include: NutriSolutions 360° program, plant growth regulators (PGRs), late-season nitrogen in soybeans, insecticide use on traited products and response to fungicide.

The Answer Plot Programincludes hundreds of replicated trials and demonstration plots nationwide. Local Answer Plot Knowledge Events also offer local expertise from WinField agronomists, who are experts on local crop production issues, and able to answer questions from plant nutrients and weed, disease and insect management to plant growth and development.

2013 Insights

Each season of The Answer Plot program produces science-based data points, which WinField develops into insights that continually advance the program in subsequent years.

Last year’s Answer Plot trial results underscore the value of planting new, high-yield potential corn products. New CROPLAN by WinField corn genetics beat the competition by an average of 7 bushels per acre, while providing a 4-bushel yield increase compared to mature CROPLAN lines. Data also revealed that new soybean genetics and Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans delivered more bushels per acre than current and Roundup Ready 1 varieties.
