Corteva Launches LANDVisor
Corteva has announced the launch of LANDvisor, a new integrated technology solution designed to allow ranchers and land managers to implement customized solutions to help them reach their goals.
LANDVisor combines sophisticated imagery and data analytics with expert management advice to increase land productivity. The technology provides detailed information on forage productivity and vegetation including the density of desirable and undesirable plant species, identifying where and when herbicide treatments will be most beneficial.
“Land managers and ranchers care about all their resources, and they manage all of them for both environmental and economic sustainability. LANDVisor gives them confidence that they are making optimum decisions. Providing customers with the latest integrated technology to sustainably manage their resources and maximize productivity is key to fulfilling our commitment to ensure progress,” said Damon Palmer, Pasture and Land Management Business Leader at Corteva Agriscience.
LANDVisor allows producers to manage land for optimal productivity and environmental outcomes. Through key insights, this tool helps land managers make more informed, actionable decisions on the potential of their land, resulting in maximum return on investment. Left unchecked, low-value undesirable vegetation reduces forage production and profit potential for livestock grazers while also degrading wildlife habitat.
LANDVisor give producers the ability to target their investment where it will provide the greatest production and environmental benefits, and extends the expert relationships with consultants and Corteva Range & Pasture specialists through progress tracking.
Earlier this year, rancher K.C. Windham participated in a test of LANDVisor in a mesquite control project on his ranch near Clyde, Texas. “With this program, you don’t have to guess. It gives you the tools to make better decisions, looking at soils, where the plants are and what improvement you can make," says Windham.
In early 2020, LANDVisor will be available to ranchers and land managers in the Southwest to manage highly invasive honey mesquite. As a significant consumer of water, honey mesquite outcompetes native grasses and desirable woody plants, reducing both forage production for cattle and plant diversity for wildlife.
Corteva plans to expand LANDVisor in the United States and around the world for use in the range and pasture business but also in other industries. For more information on LANDVisor, visit LandVisor.Corteva.com.
