During the coming planting season – farmers in four Midwestern states will participate in Monsanto’s Ground Breakers testing program for FieldScripts. FieldScripts is Monsanto’s first product from the Integrated Farming Systems platform and is designed to give farmers a new approach to boosting on-farm productivity while supporting more sustainable ag systems for the growing world.
Monsanto’s IFS Commercial Lead John Raines says FieldScripts has been tested during the past two years – and Monsanto has seen consistent yield increases when farmers use the product. During the 2013 Ground Breakers trials – twice as many farmers will test the product. Monsanto anticipates launching the product in 2014 in the DEKALB corn brand in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana and Minnesota.
