NUTRIPLUS® Observatory – Regional harvest forecast for silage

Inform farmers about the upcoming harvest forecast in just one click

With NUTRIPLUS® Observatory, agronomists can easily and rapidly inform and communicate to their farmers or technicians about the silage harvest forecast dates in their region.

Harvesting the silage maize at the right stage is one of the key parameter to get a qualitative and quantitative silage. We observe that 2 out of 3 farmers do not harvest at the right stage in silage. 

Ensure harvest quality

NUTRIPLUS® Observatory helps farmers to:

  • Better understand: View a variety of indicators for silage maize growers in your region (location, weather, sowing date, maturity group) and anticipate harvest date
  • Better communicate: Communicate easily and rapidly to your technicians and farmers on harvest forecast dates

The regional report

The NUTRIPLUS® Observatory delivers a harvest window forecast per maturity group depending on the selected sowing window in a given region. The report combines following information representing a region in a table: 

  • Locations
  • Varieties from different maturities
  • Sowing periods

The summary of comparative data makes it possible to identify the real state of harvest maturity in a region, at a glance.
