The most up-to-date precision farming tools can enable you to increase returns by varying the rates at which inputs — such as fertilizer, pesticides and seed — are applied to match the yield potential of specific parts of individual fields. This means that with crop nutrients and chemical inputs, they are being applied where they are required and at a rate that will be effective in deficient or problem areas. These tools also gather extremely useful and accurate data, allowing quick and clear analysis to enable informed management decisions to be made. Take a look at the video below for more information.

Were you at the show? What did you think about AG CONNECT Expo 2011?
The inaugural AG CONNECT Expo in Orlando, Florida in January 2010 was indeed the global North American trade show we anticipated. A strong foundation has been built for the future and we expect AG CONNECT Expo 2011 in AGCO’s hometown of Atlanta at the World Congress Center, January 8‐10 (Preview Day January 7) will be even bigger and better.
“Thank you” to the high quality producers at this year’s show who made it such a success. Producers at AG CONNECT operate an average 2,900 acres and the vast majority possesses significant purchasing power. Producers and exhibitors who participated in this new agricultural exhibition, a show directed “by the industry and for the industry,” had the experience of quality, quality, quality.
AG CONNECT Expo provides the forum in North America where cutting‐edge international expertise provides focused solutions for the unique local needs of farmers around the world:
• Registrants from 62 countries
• The show featured pavilions from Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China and Europe
• More than 40 supporting organizations from around the world participated
At AG CONNECT Expo, agriculture stakeholders have one of the best opportunities to interact with each other and build their businesses during the coming years. We know that global food production will need to double in the next 40 years– a daunting challenge that can only be met with innovative technology and forward‐looking, science‐based agriculture.
AG CONNECT Expo is a showcase for prototypes, innovations and the best in efficiency‐creating technology. Producers say they want innovations, technological solutions, advances in machinery, education from the experts and the best in networking, facilitating high level discussions on all issues including legislation that is greatly influencing our industry. That’s what this trade show offers them. Source: AG CONNECT Expo 2011
Not only will AGCO be there showcasing new products and technologies, we will also be helping out with AgChat Foundation’s hands-on social media training. (Click here to register for the training.) We hope to see you out there!
