DEKALB, Asgrow and Deltapine seed brands wanted current and prospective customers to see them as a trusted agronomic resource and thought leader.
The seed distribution model challenged this goal with farmers looking to their dealer or retailer for agronomic support rather than the seed brand. DEKALB, Asgrow and Deltapine needed a way to show how their expertise complemented a farmer’s current agronomic support system.
Celebrate the Industry. Champion growers and their agronomic gurus.
Research revealed social media conversations around seed brands were low in late March/early April. We also discovered NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer, who owns a row-crop farm in North Carolina, indexed highly with growers. With this in mind, we kicked off Agronomy Week — a weeklong celebration of agriculture and the importance of agronomic support. Now entering its fourth year, Agronomy Week highlights the parallels between farming and racing to expand awareness of DEKALB, Agrow and Deltapine’s agronomic support.
