DuPont Pioneer and Exmark Launch “In Your Backyard” Promotion

Entrants have a chance to win an Exmark Lazer Z X-Series mower worth more than $12,000

Beatrice, Neb. (August 21, 2014) — Exmark today announced a joint promotion with DuPont Pioneer and its Pioneer GrowingPoint agronomy program. Through the DuPont Pioneer “In Your Backyard” sweepstakes, one lucky entrant will win an Exmark Lazer Z X-Series commercial zero-turn mower worth more than $12,000.

Thousands of Pioneer GrowingPoint agronomy trials are planted each year providing growers with local, on-farm crop management insights.  These trials evaluate the interaction of genetics with the environment and with management to help growers minimize risk and maximize yield. The result is the ability to match the right product on the right acre to increase the potential for optimum yields.

“Pioneer prides itself on having local agronomy trials practically in the backyard of growers in the Cornbelt,” said Rick Radliff, DuPont Pioneer senior Agronomy manager.  “This promotion with Exmark is a nice reminder of our efforts to make our global science local and relevant to growers.”

According to Exmark Director of Marketing, Daryn Walters, DuPont Pioneer and Exmark are a great fit for this promotion.

“Much like the folks at DuPont Pioneer, we at Exmark are focused on being the best at serving the distinct local needs of our customers. That means testing in every possible condition, because today more than ever, there is no best solution for every situation.

“That said, virtually anyone can benefit from the professional level of productivity and maneuverability a zero-turn Exmark Lazer Z mower delivers.”

The winner will be selected from all eligible entries received by October 7, 2014, and will take home a 2014 Exmark Lazer Z X-Series zero-turn mower with a 60-inch cutting deck and a retail value of more than $12,000.
