ACRES (Advanced Crop Revenue Enhancement System) is an innovative, new program that was unveiled earlier this year at the 48th National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky. ACRES combines on-farm data about soil attributes, crop rotation, etc. with the unique performance attributes of seed, chemical and fertilizer products to ensure optimal performance.

ACRES offers customers the following benefits:
• Steyer has access to all trait platforms so trait rotation is taken into account in order to avoid insect resistance to Bt events
• Order placement component ties into Steyer’s inventory in real time
• Geo-fulfillment component to improve delivery efficiencies
• Herbicide sensitivity ratings on hybrids are noted

ACRES is built upon the Data-Driven Farming System by MyFarms to combine proprietary product knowledge with the data farmers own and manage to improve crop production. ACRES leverages the core structure of MyFarms to provide a robust, comprehensive crop management tool that allows farmers to benefit from Steyer’s experts to ensure success.
