06 Jan,2023 - Corteva Agriscience today announced a collaboration with NEVONEX, powered by Bosch, to explore precision application of crop protection products using on-farm data, advanced analytics, and spray equipment. The collaboration intends to create value for farmers by enabling data-driven crop protection applications with standard machine spray technology.
"Corteva Agriscience is excited to include NEVONEX among our growing list of industry collaborations aimed at leveraging digital capabilities to deliver new value to farmers through our crop protection products,” said Dr. Brian Lutz, Vice President of Digital Solutions at Corteva Agriscience. “Through our Research and Development (R&D) efforts at Corteva, we are creating new value for our customers based on how we connect data and digital systems with equipment on the farm. By coupling intelligent equipment with real-time, farm-specific data analytics, we can provide detailed crop protection prescriptions customized for an operation in order to optimize every dollar invested while sustainably meeting yield and productivity goals.”
“Our collaboration with Corteva reflects our goals of making a difference through digitalization, while putting the farmer at the center,” said Dr. Micha Muenzenmay, Chief Technology Officer at NEVONEX. “Through our open, technology-neutral Digital Services platform, we put the right data together to enable better decision making for on-farm application.”
NEVONEX, powered by Bosch, offers an end-to-end infrastructure and managed framework with interface access to a wide range of agricultural machinery. Through smart digital agriculture, farmers benefit from higher yield potential, optimized operating processes, and right-sized use of crop protection, seed and fertilizer products while protecting and preserving environmental resources.
This exploratory work within R&D reflects Corteva’s commitment to sustainable innovation and the continued effort to integrate digital capabilities into the company’s crop protection and seed product portfolios.
