After completion of the online process, Cropwise Seed Selector will recommend you a 1 preferred hybrid along with 2 alternatives for each field and show agronomic profiles for these products.  


Buying Seeds Made Easier

Once your seed recommendations are shown on screen you can press ‘buy’ and purchase your seed requirements online. In countries like Poland this facility is in place and growers are directed to an e-Shop where they will be able to buy their seeds. The system will automatically feed into the shopping basket the exact quantity of seed bags required and hybrid products to purchase based on the recommendations of Seed Selector.

For countries where direct e-Commerce platforms are not available an e-Voucher will be produced instead. The grower can then email or print off this e-Voucher and redeem it with a local distributor when purchasing hybrid seed from that company.    


The Knowledge and Science Behind the Screen

Cropwise Seed Selector doesn’t just churn out an isolated recommendation for your fields. It also explains why it is recommending certain hybrids based on a diagnosis of 3 fundamental factors – environmental stress, soil conditions and the historical yield potential. Algorithms in Cropwise Seed Selector then determine and create a performance score for each hybrid as well as a ranking using many thousands of data comparisons. This data can be accessed and viewed at any time.

Cropwise Seed Selector is a tool for all growers, whether they are farming two fields or 200 fields. Agronomic inputs and sustainable practices are at the heart of the system to ensure the most reliable, technical, evidence-led recommendations.

Cropwise Seed Selector will help you reduce risk and offer better performance by making it easier for you to make smarter agronomic planting decisions based on your fields and environment.

Over the years we have gathered plenty of experience from field trials to breeding programmes, to agronomy and on-farm experiments. All this knowledge is put into our seed recommendations and is ready for you whenever you want to access it.
