Golden Harvest announced Aug. 25 the launch of GHX Mobile, an online and app experience designed to put the future of seed sales in the farmer's hands.
GHX Mobile offers field scouting recommendations, yield tracking and predictions, weather and markets in one program.
"GHX Mobile is built to support an end-to-end approach to farming that focuses on minimizing risk and maximizing potential revenue opportunities for farmers," says Justin Welch, head of digital ag for Syngenta Seeds, U.S.
The platform can be used to manage all fields in an operation, regardless of which seed brand a grower uses.
"Our ultimate goal with this digital platform is to help farmers use data to save time and increase revenue potential. The app gives farmers insights on key crop activities, including when to plant or spray and what fields to scout," says Welch. "In-season yield monitoring tied with current market prices will also give farmers real-time revenue estimates."
The app integrates other mobile features like MaxScript, per-acre pricing, ServiceSquad! and risk assurance benefits through the AgriClime weather protection.
GHX Mobile is currently available for farmers using iOS (Apple) devices and is being piloted in Iowa and Illinois.
