Terms and Conditions


Description: These Terms and Conditions relate to the DecilePro® Program for 2021.

Background: If you meet the requirements and are eligible to participate in the DecilePro® Program, you may be eligible to receive a credit towards the purchase of additional Monsanto / Bayer products or Pacific Seeds products (where applicable) (not transferable or redeemable for cash) (“Product Credit”) if the amount of rainfall experienced during the relevant growing season rainfall period (as set out in these Terms and Conditions) (“Growing Season”) is below the Rainfall Trigger Point threshold (set out below) for the current season.

On or before the Rainfall Review Date specified in these Terms and Conditions, Monsanto will review the Bureau of Meteorology data to determine the rainfall that was experienced by you in your respective geographical area during the Growing Season. Monsanto will notify you in writing of the outcome of that review within 30 days.

Monsanto will provide the Product Credit to you at the same time final rainfall data is provided if you experienced rainfall below the defined threshold during the applicable Growing Season. You acknowledge that you cannot dispute the Bureau of Meteorology data.

Deciles are calculated using the previous 20 years data for the relevant growing season period. A decile is any of the nine values that divide the sorted data into ten equal parts, so that each part represents 1/10 of the sample or population. A decile rank arranges the data in order from lowest to highest and is done on a scale of one to ten where each successive number corresponds to an increase of 10 percentage.
