DuPont Pioneer and AGCO Corp. announced a global collaboration to bring wireless data transfer technology solutions to farmers in leading agricultural markets, including the United States, Canada, Brazil and key European countries.
The agreement will allow seamless interface of data and farm management information between AGCO equipment and Encirca services, the new whole-farm decision solutions offering from Pioneer that is designed to help growers improve their productivity and profitability.
Seamless data transfer is an important technology enabler for Encirca services, which are currently being rolled out in North America to corn and soybean farmers and can be offered globally over time to support a wide range of crops and markets.
As part of the AGCO Fuse Technologies platform, as well as the commitment by Pioneer to offer brand neutral decision agriculture services, growers can choose to have data collected through AGCO’s VarioDoc, TaskDoc and AgCommand systems wirelessly transferred to Pioneer Encirca services.
AGCO’s VarioDoc and TaskDocare task file management systems that allow growers to transfer task files between their farm machines and office without the need for a data card, portable memory drive or the physical transfer of devices. AgCommand is AGCO’s fleet and asset management system that provides growers, contractors and managers with instant access to a wide range of information about equipment working in the fields or traveling on the road.
VarioDoc is available as optional equipment on most Fendt tractors, forage harvesters and combines; TaskDoc is now available on select Massey Ferguson combines with more AGCO products planned in the future. AgCommand is a standard feature on many Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson and Valtra machines.
