Making the Right Decisions With Cropwise® Seed Selector

Choosing the Right Hybrid: A Difficult Challenge

With thousands of commercially available corn hybrids to choose from on the market, one of the most daunting challenges European growers face is choosing the best one for their needs. Syngenta can help you meet this challenge head-on with our unique and differentiated hybrid seed recommendations. With our digital solutions, you’ll have access to this innovative technology for your farm.


What Sets us Apart?

Traditional ‘regional’ recommendations don’t always work and are not always relevant for specific circumstances. Instead, we believe the best recommendations are based on precision and experience, which is why Syngenta has developed Cropwise Seed Selector. Cropwise Seed Selector is all about allowing growers to make more confident decisions by providing high-quality recommendations.

From our trials around Europe, we can give the best advice and solutions to growers for each individual field. Cropwise Seed Selector does this by categorizing each of our 50,000 trial locations by their environment, climate, soils and yield potential, so it can best meet the requirements for your own fields and farms.


A Convenient Online Solution, Wherever you are

Cropwise Seed Selector is all about providing added convenience and flexibility for farmers who lead busy lives. We have taken the time to transition this digital service into a direct online platform, so more growers can access the service for their farms. The release of this ‘self-service’ platform is an important milestone for Syngenta® as it offers the same experience and data-driven personalized recommendations for each grower that is used by Syngenta’s technical sales representatives on a daily basis.

Cropwise Seed Selector provides ultimate flexibility and enables growers all around Europe to benefit from our field specific recommendations. Whether it’s for smaller farms that are not frequently visited by advisors, or for growers who are simply looking for convenience.

In addition to seed recommendations, you can also make purchases directly from Seed Selector which will give you access to plenty of after-sales services you can take advantage of throughout the growing season. In summary, Cropwise Seed Selector is designed to work for everyone on any device and can be easily accessed by growers whether they are on the farm or in the office.


The Importance of Trust and Experience

Our recommendations come tried and tested. Seed Selector’s application along with Syngenta’s on-farm technical sales reps have already collected plenty of valuable data over the last few seasons creating hybrid recommendations on more than 5.2M ha of corn in Europe for more than 8,000 growers just like you!

Whilst growers receive many incentivized offers to buy certain hybrids, any short-term gains or savings in seed costs are quickly lost if hybrids are not well suited to specific farm conditions! This is why Cropwise Seed Selector’s recommendations are built on data matching your local conditions and your fields.

As corn is planted just once a year, every farmer has a limited number of opportunities in their lifetimes to find the right hybrid for their field. We understand that each of these decisions is vital. Luckily seeds selector is here to help you make the best planting decisions using Syngenta’s experience and technical resources.


Looking After all Growers

Larger farms will often try to ‘manage risk’ by planting different hybrids across their fields to compensate for any that don’t perform well. Smaller growers with just a handful of fields cannot easily manage plantings in this way, so are invariably exposed to higher risk throughout the growing season and do not always get the technical agronomic advice they need either. Digital solutions like Cropwise Seed Selector allow us to bring these services to farms across Europe, so no one misses out on the best agronomic advice and the best growing experience. 

In choosing the right hybrid to plant on each field, you effectively reduce risks and variables which can make the difference between a successful or unsuccessful season. Cropwise Seed Selector ensures sustainable seed recommendations for all outcomes, with recommendations developed for remarkable stability and consistency in hybrid performance to cope with variable environmental extremes and climates.
