Scott Leighton, Roberts State Agronomy Manager in Tasmania (pictured) says AgriClime gives that extra support that might make all the difference to a grower.

In a tight season, every little bit helps. That’s why Syngenta launched its grower cash-back offer, AgriClime.

AgriClime helps shoulder the risk of a dry spring with growers . It is part of the CerealSmart program that supports cereal growers to manage risk and optimise production.

Growers who are eligible for AgriClime receive 15% of their investment in Syngenta technology as cash-back if rainfall does not meet a threshold level over the elected offer period during the season.

AgriClime enrolment is free of charge. To be eligible, growers must spend at least $50/ha on at least two selected Syngenta products across a minimum of 300 hectares.

For Tasmanian-based, Roberts State Agronomy Manager, Scott Leighton it’s a no-brainer to sign up for the AgriClime cash-back offer.

“The fact that it costs nothing to participate, and you could get a cash-back, is enough reason for us to promote AgriClime to our growers,” Scott said.

Growers can select an offer period - either August/September or September/October. Simply enrol your hectares and Syngenta products, and we'll caculate the potential cash-back.

Rainfall thresholds will then be sent to enrolled growers and they will have the option to "opt out". 

At the end of the offer period, if rainfall is below the threshold, a notification will be sent with cash-back details.

Sign up closes 30 June for August/September and 31 July for September/October.

“I reckon the AgriClime offer is brilliant, and something that will be of real benefit to growers who might do it tough during the season rainfall-wise.

“We will certainly be offering the AgriClime offer to our growers this season, especially since we experienced a tough, dry year this season. It’s just that extra support that might make all the difference to a grower,” Scott said.
