Syngenta introduces new features to its FarmAssist.com mobile website to provide a convenient, easy-to-navigate display with an enhanced search function and more information.
For more than 10years, FarmAssist has provided the ag community with online pest, weather and crop protection updates, along with information on shifting market trends like commodity prices and cash bids. With recent enhancements, the mobile-friendly version of this popular website now allows access to crop protection information like rates, states, pests, crops and modes of action (MOA), all within reach from your mobile device. Also included in the site updates is the addition of the entire Syngenta corn, soybean vegetable and sugarbeet seed portfolio.
"The number of growers and retailers who utilize mobile technology has steadily increased over the past few years," says Anthony Transou, Syngenta Internet marketing manager. "With FarmAssist Mobile, any mobile device with wireless web service can become an agronomic tool. The integration of additional information will offer new levels of convenience to growers across the U.S., allowing them access to both agronomic and product information from the field where they work."
Key benefits of the updated platform include:
· Search by hybrid or brand name.
· Target relative maturity, trait stack or brand to get detailed ratings on hybrids.
· Search by crop, product type, state, pest or view complete crop protection product list.
