New Seed Field Worker Pilot Project Launches in Iowa

  • On April 16, 2020

The Iowa Seed Association, Iowa Agricultural Aviation Association and FieldWatch are launching a pilot program in Iowa for the 2020 planting season called SeedFieldCheck. The new functionality will be integrated into the existing FieldWatch crop and apiary registry and will help seed companies more effectively communicate the location and presence of seed field workers to pesticide applicators. The information will be available in near real-time, allowing seed companies the ability to make edits and update plans quickly and replace the endless circulation of emails and paper or electronic maps to targeted applicators.

With the addition of seed field workers to the FieldWatch system, a national registry recognized as a trusted partner in facilitating communication and stewardship, there will be a “one-stop-shop” for applicators to find information about sensitive crops, apiaries and seed field workers.
