EncircaIf you have JDLink Connect for your John Deere Operations Center account you’re in luck.  DuPont Pioneer is offering John Deere customers the opportunity to try the EncircaSM Yield Nitrogen Management Service for free this summer.  The Encirca platform provides in-season nitrogen monitoring and management services.

“We believe growers who try this no-risk offer will see value of the data-driven insights from EncircaSM services and the John Deere Operations Center to make more informed decisions about critical crop inputs and equipment optimization,” said Eric Boeck, DuPont Pioneer marketing director for EncircaSM services. “Dynamic management of their operation through the growing season can help growers see more green at harvest through higher yields and lower input costs.”

The promotion includes a free nitrogen evaluation by an Encirca certified services agent of about 100 acres of a grower’s cropland, real-time computer monitoring of nitrogen levels on those acres through the 2016 growing season, and a one-on-one review of nitrogen plans with respect to final yields in the fall. EncircaSM services are driven by strong agronomic expertise, proprietary soil analysis and classifications, advanced crop modeling and an exclusive hyper-local weather network.

“John Deere is excited about this offer from Pioneer because it helps expand the value of JDLinkTM Connect and the John Deere Operations Center beyond the convenience of data connectivity and the value of job optimization solutions,” said Kevin Very, business solutions manager, John Deere. “When growers opt to share their data with EncircaSM services and the John Deere Operations Center, they open a whole new set of advanced management insights. EncircaSM services enable such insights as variable rate fertilizer prescriptions available as crops are being harvested. This means more efficient deployment of equipment and labor.”

“Adding the post-harvest review of nitrogen plans will help growers better understand what happened in their field through the season and why,” said Boeck. “Their EncircaSMcertified services agent and Pioneer sales professional can then work with them to develop an ideal plan for the next growing season.”

The promotion is expected to be expanded in 2017.  Growers who enroll 1,000 acres in EncircaSM Yield Services from September to December 2016 will also receive a free, year-long subscription to JDLink TM Connect and the John Deere Operations Center.  Find out more at
