AgriClime FAQ's

Please see below frequently asked questions relating to AgriClime 2019 offer. 

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 up to 30% 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 and Exit point?

The rainfall threshold and exit point - which triggers a cash-back and maximum payout if it is not reached during the offer period – is a 1 in 5 year drought event for the registered Grid Cell that your paddock is located in. It is not an average rainfall. The rainfall threshold calculation used for AgriClime™ uses 20 years of historical rainfall data and it is calculated to a GPS pixel of 5km X 5km. The weather data supplied to Syngenta is sourced from an internationally recognised independent third party provider.

At the end of your selected program period, if the rainfall recorded for your location is below the Rainfall Threshold provided in your Program Confirmation, a cash-back is triggered. This payout will increase as the rainfall recorded decreases, to a Maximum Cash-Back of 30%. The Maximum Cash-Back is 30% of your Committed Spend and is triggered when your rainfall is recorded below the Exit Point provided in your Program Confirmation. The amount of Cash-Back is based on the difference between the Rainfall Threshold and your recorded rainfall, and paid out on a linear, dollar value per mm basis. Information on your individual cash-back potential is provided in your Program Confirmation.

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 2019 or September-October 2019.

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 3% 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 3% 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.
