Not more than a decade ago, farmers were just warming up to the idea of hydraulic and electric guidance to steer their tractors, implements and combines in a consistent, straight line. Ag dealers were finding that “they require precision ag specialist to keep up with the new developments and best serve their customers” says Chad Elmore, managing editor of Farm Equipment. Here at AGCO, our dealers are dedicated to serving your technology needs.
Support after the sale is a crucial part of the equation; AGCO is proud to help serve you, the customer, at your earliest convenience. Elmore continues to say, “today, precision farming techniques are accepted by many in the ag industry and products that make up that segment are being updated continuously.” AGCO Advanced Technology Solutions is constantly working to provide our customers with cutting edge technology to save you money and more importantly, time, so you can spend time with the ones you love – not just the tractor you love!
Dave Swain, Technology Marketing Specialist – HHP Tractors says, “More farmers are running multiple machines in different areas and they need to know what’s going on with each piece of equipment. Telematics will play a big role in agriculture. There’s a lot of data being generated by machines that can be used by the farm operator to make decisions ranging from equipment stylization to maintenance.”
Our AgCommand telematics service monitors engine and transmission status, machine location, combine operation information along with other data. The user can see the information on their computer through the internet or receive SMS messages via cell phone.
AGCO has many different telemetry and guidance products to help you become more efficient in your farming tactics. Please visit your local dealer or our website at www.AGCOTechnologies.com to see how we can help you increase your margins and spend more time with your loved ones!
