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 (https://www.meteogroup.com/), 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.

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