AgriClime FAQ's

Please see below frequently asked questions relating to AgriClime. 

Why register for AgriClime?

AgriClime™ is a free Syngenta program to help share with Australian broadacre growers the risk of low rainfall during August to October. You can receive 15% cash-back on eligible Syngenta products if you do not reach your rainfall threshold for your selected offer period. Have the confidence to invest in a better crop by knowing Syngenta is willing to share with you the risk of low rainfall. 

What is a rainfall threshold?

The rainfall threshold - which triggers a cash-back if it is not reached during the offer period – is a 1 in 10 year drought event for your paddock. It is not an average rainfall. The rainfall threshold calculation used for AgriClime™ is generated by Metogroup (https://www.meteogroup.com/), Syngenta’s meteorological partner. The calculation uses 20 years of historical rainfall data and it is calculated to a GPS pixel of 25km X 25km.

  • $15,000 minimum spend (no minimum hectares)

How much does it cost to register for AgriClime?

Registration is free of charge! However you must meet the minimum eligibility requirements.

What is the elected offer period?

It is the period where the offer is active and rainfall threshold set. There are two options; starting date August-September 2018 or September-October 2018.

Are there any ineligible locations?

Unfortunately, AgriClime is not offered in locations where the rainfall threshold is set below 3 millimetres during the elected offer period. This will be flagged on the registration page. 

What is the break fee?

Syngenta wants growers to be accurately covered in the event of a Cash Back. A break fee of 2% of the committed spend is put in place to encourage accuracy when growers or advisors are registering for AgriClime. If the Grower does not achieve the Committed Spend and/or Minimum Spend during the Program Period, the break fee of 2% may apply and no Cash Back may be payable if a Drought Event has occurred. If the Break Fee is enforced by Syngenta, it must be paid within 14 days following the end of the Program Period.
