Is AgriClime part of your paddock

AgriClime 2019 registration closed

AgriClime™ is a free Syngenta program to help share with Australian broadacre growers the risk of low rainfall during August to October. Have the confidence to invest in a better crop by knowing Syngenta is willing to share with you the risk of low rainfall. Give your crop what it needs to out-perform and out-yield, and if the rain doesn’t come your way, Syngenta will give you up to 30% cash-back on your eligible spend.

Based on the feedback from growers, resellers and advisors, Syngenta has made the 2019 AgriClime offer more attractive than ever before.

Key changes to the AgriClime offer include:
• Double the chance of a cash-back compared to 2018
• Up to 30% cash-back
• The less rainfall, the higher the cash-back

Things that remain the same:
• Minimum of two (2) products to qualify
• $15,000 minimum spend on participating Syngenta products

Two offer periods:
• 1st August - 29th September 2019 registration CLOSED
• 1st September - 30th October 2019 registration  CLOSED (Thursday 1st August 2019)

Purchases between October 2018 to September 2019 are eligible.

How does the new offer work?

To qualify, growers must purchase a minimum of two eligible Syngenta products to a combined minimum value of $15,000. Purchases between October 2018 and September 2019 are eligible. The actual sign up can be done later, but it’s worth weighing it up now to see what Syngenta products (listed above) might be a good fit for your farm.

• Smaller 5 X 5km Grid Cells offer a better fit with your farm and rainfall patterns
• The Rainfall Threshold is now set to a 1-in-5 year rainfall event for the nominated Grid Cell
• This equals twice the chance of a cash-back compared to the previous offer
• Less rainfall = higher the cash-back
• If rainfall is recorded below the Rainfall Threshold a cash-back is triggered. This payout will increase as the rainfall figure decreases, to a set exit point of 30% cash-back

The online signup tool also provides an example chart to explain the model used for AgriClime. It demonstrates those years in the past 20 where you would have received cash-back based on this year’s updated data set, Rainfall Threshold and Exit Point. The model works on the basis of the less rainfall, the higher the cash-back. Cash-back begins when rainfall is recorded below the Rainfall Threshold, and continues to a maximum of 30% of committed spend when rainfall recorded is below the Exit Point. The model is linear and paid at a pre-determined dollar value per mm below the Rainfall Threshold.
