At Pannar our journey with you doesn’t end at planting. We want to see you achieve the full profitability and performance potential benefits of our products. To do so, we need to provide accurate placement recommendations and farm management guidelines based on long-term, multi-regional agronomic trials. This work is undertaken in our Panagri™ programme.

In this programme we do the groundwork to investigate the relationship between crop yields, management practices, input application rates, soil characteristics and weather variables. The advent of precision agriculture technology has made information provided by agronomic trials even more valuable than ever before. The application of sound economic theory to our Panagri™ findings is how we will enrich the lives of farmers and together explore the frontiers of farming and science.

While we don’t have all the answers today, we have a strong foundation of agronomic expertise to build on, and the analytical skills, courage and curiosity to push our understanding of best agronomic practices forward. We’d like to invite you on this journey with us to see where we’re headed, what our team is actively working on and what we learn along the way,” says Pannar Lead Agronomist, Grant Pringle.

What sort of groundwork?

One of our key Panagri™ research projects is our annual on-farm P3 trials which are an important cornerstone of our product advancement process. These statistical strip trials are used to test new pipeline products at field scale under the normal management practices of our co-operating farmers and the prevailing environmental conditions on their farms. The performance of these products is then compared to the performance of Pannar’s current commercial and opposition products. In this way the P3 trial results function as a final ‘acid test’ before the wide-scale launch of the new products, ensuring their success.

We invite you to learn more about our Panagri™ practical farming research at Val Boeredag on 3 July 2024. Come speak to our experts and let’s co-author your success story!
