DuPont Says Farmers Want Actionable Whole-Farm Insights
Technology and Data Alone will not Improve Farm Profitabilitity 
ORLANDO, Fla. - March 1, 2013 - DuPont said today that while new digital 
technology is allowing farmers to gather massive amounts of data, the real 
value comes when data drives insights to help them improve their operations' 
profitability. 
"In today's complex, data-intense farming operations, growers need a way to 
sort through all their data to make better decisions," said Paul E. Schickler, 
DuPont Pioneer president. "Information is only relevant if it is used in a way 
that can help increase the entire operation's profitability, and that next 
generation of whole-farm management begins today." 
As part of DuPont's commitment to farmers and increasing the food supply around 
the world, DuPont Pioneer announced at the Commodity Classic today that the 
business is immediately dedicating additional resources to meet increasing 
grower demand for the next generation of whole-farm profitability services. The 
business plans to deliver insights for advanced farmer profitability and expand 
its support for a wide variety of farming decisions including seed selections, 
in-season crop management and water and fertility management - all at a 
grower's fingertips. 
The first wave of new services is available to farmers this growing season. 
Pioneer(r) Field360(tm) services was launched today and is designed to help 
growers confidently transform their farm data into increased productivity 
through timely and actionable information. 
"DuPont Pioneer understands farmers are eager to synthesize knowledge and 
convert data from their operations into actionable management insights," said 
Schickler. "Pioneer(r) Field360(tm) services combined with our team of sales 
professionals will provide growers a vital link between data and action that 
can help drive income per acre year after year."
Following are brief descriptions about the new management apps and tools that 
will be available with Pioneer(r) Field360(tm) services:

agronomic information for communication between DuPont Pioneer agronomists,

leveraging web-based software that allows growers to monitor their fields in

boundaries. Available to growers later this year, the program is compatible 
with Pioneer(r) Field360(tm) and runs on any computer or tablet with Internet
