Pioneer introduces Inoculant Value Calculator

Agriculture.com Staff 08/02/2012 @ 2:33pm

Livestock producers will now be able to calculate the overall value of forage inoculants through a new, easy-to-use online tool from DuPont Pioneer.

The Pioneer Inoculant Value Calculator is a calculator/product selection tool that helps producers gain a “hands-on” look at how inoculants can make a difference in their operations. 

“By inserting information from their forage production and feeding program, producers will be able to evaluate how an inoculant can help their dairy or beef operation,” says Kyle Whitaker, DuPont Pioneer senior sales & marketing manager, global forages. “Producers can see the value in terms of return on investment and savings per cow per day.”

The calculator asks participants to provide ten answers to questions on the crop, storage system, feeding rates, market prices of corn and soybeans, etc., to show the economic returns of various inoculants options. In return, it provides three main “values” of an inoculant choice: 1) value from reduced shrink (dry matter recovery or preservation on the front end), 2) value of improved bunklife (aerobic stability on the back end) and 3) value of reduced feed input (feed cost savings).

The program is a web-based platform accessible by computer, iPad or smartphone.
