AgriClime FAQ's

Please see below frequently asked questions relating to AgriClime. 

Why register for AgriClime?

AgriClime™ is a 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.

What is a rainfall threshold?

The rainfall threshold - which triggers a cash-back if it is not reached – 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 (, Syngenta’s meteorological partner. The calculation uses 20 years of historical rainfall data and forward trend modelling. It is calculated to a GPS pixel of 20km².

What is the 2018 AgriClime™ offer?

  • $15,000 minimum spend (no minimum hectares)
  • 15% payout if rainfall threshold not met
  • Minimum two (2) products to qualify
