As farms continue to grow in size, farmers need efficient ways to collect and transfer agronomic data from those acres at key times in the season. We discuss the bottlenecks that happen and why timely data transfer is so important.
Read how a precision farming coordinator in Illinois helps his customers manage their data collection and transfer wirelessly so that decisions, prescriptions and even delivery of inputs like fertilizer can happen faster.
Trials show that banding starter nutrients when planting wheat can increase yields with lower input costs.
AGCO is even better equipped to help farmers be productive when they are PUTTING DATA TO WORK, via our alliances with Farmobile, Aglytix and other high-tech partners. We’ve also introduced the HIGHLY CONFIGURABLE SUNFLOWER NARROW-TRANSPORT HIGH-SPEED AIR DRILL, which is versatile enough to manage residue, while handling a wide range of seed sizes for use planting wheat in the fall and soybeans in the spring.
In this and every issue of Performance Agronomy, we bring news from the AGCO Crop Tour program, which wrapped up for 2017 with several successful on-farm events in August and will be logging final harvest results from hundreds of acres on multiple sites soon.
