Dow AgroSciences, Coherent Ag Solutions Partner on New Stewardship Technology for Farmers

Coherent Ag Solutions and Dow AgroSciences partner to give farmers a convenient way to advance stewardship programs for their crop chemicals. Patented application technology from Dow AgroSciences will be incorporated into AgSteward, a cloud-based crop protection stewardship system offered by Coherent Ag Solutions.

The AgSteward system provides actionable information with the touch of a button. For example, this interface brings together information on geospatial proximity to surrounding fields, susceptible crops, waterways, and sensitive habitats to help the farmer apply the labeled-use specifications of crop protection products.
It incorporates real-time data feeds from third-party crop registries, habitat and waterway repositories as well as weather services. The result is a dynamically generated map featuring product-specific requirements, thus enhancing stewardship programs, according to the two companies. Coherent Ag Solutions will widely market AgSteward as a cloud-based web-service to allow for ease of integration with existing software systems for the crop protection industry.
