Pioneer Launches Yield Estimator
Part of the Pioneer mobile app, the new Corn Yield Estimator is based on kernel count, stand count and kernels per bushel. It walks the user through the process of lining up the corn ear to be sampled, taking the necessary number of images and entering information before providing a yield estimate.
The tool requires that husks and silks be removed in the picture, but the ear does not need to be pulled from the stalk.
“This tool is part of Pioneer’s effort to advance customers’ ability to improve management,” says Jeremy Groeteke, U.S. Digital Agriculture Lead, Corteva Agriscience. “The goal of this app is to standardize the process for estimating yield from a single ear of corn and is part of our predictive agriculture effort.”
The introduction of the yield estimator kicks off a Pioneer digital ecosystem, including the Pioneer Seeds mobile app and the revamped Pioneer.com. The new login interface, along with a user friendly online payment experience and mobile responsiveness, is designed to make a more cohesive online environment for users.
The new Pioneer.com website is designed to be a one-stop-shop, providing premium resources to farmers, such as a personalized seed guide, local yield data, updated and improved agronomy filtering, seasonal tools and calculators.
