Dow AgroSciences discovers, develops, and brings to market solutions in seeds, plant biotechnology and crop protection for the growing world. Dow began in the 1950s as the agricultural unit of The Dow Chemical company. From the beginning, they set out to discover and develop innovative solutions that improve the way the world farms. In 1989, The Dow Chemical Company, which was founded in 1897, entered a joint venture with the Elanco Plant Sciences business of Eli Lilly and Company resulting in the formation of DowElanco. In 1997, The Dow Chemical Company acquired 100 percent ownership of the business and renamed it Dow AgroSciences. Today, they employ more than 9,000 people worldwide, and their 2015 global sales were $6.4 billion (U.S.).

This solution will also help enable a productive conversation between the in-field agronomist and the product advisors by facilitating easy movement of data and discoveries between them. • The solution is valuable to Input Providers as it will enable them to deepen their knowledge about grower practices, to facilitate conversations about field trials and cultivate improved product portfolio management. – This will be done by tightening the connection of data between Product Advisor and Agronomist. – The Agronomist will be able to document observations. These observations, along with the operational documentation, will be used by the Product Advisors in their overall analysis to better handle outliers and contextual information from the field observations. • The solution will help connect the Product Advisor to not only the Agronomist but also with R&D and Marketing organizations within Input Providers. • The solution will also allow data that Deere has collected to be coupled with Input Provider data to better understand impacts of Genetics vs Environment vs Management.
