As we gear up for the 2014 Farm Progress Show, we’re excited to share the full schedule of our educational series, a new addition to the AGCO lineup. The Fuse Technologies Pavilion, located on lot #1002, will be hosting a number of presentations covering a range of issues concerning technology, productivity and profitability. Presentations include:
- Who’s Watching Your Data? Corporations are interested in your agronomic data. What’s your position? We’ll help you decide by offering perspectives on the issue of data privacy. Wednesday, 10:00 a.m.
- There’s a Problem with Your Shoe! The secret to minimizing grain loss and maintaining a clean sample in higher- yielding, higher-moisture corn is in managing your combine’s shoe load. In this session, AGCO’s Kevin Bien explains why and offers solutions. Tuesday, 11:00 a.m. and Wednesday, 3:00 p.m.

- It’s All About the Kitchen! Managing job stress is an important aspect of farmer health and productivity. Here we make the business case for operator comfort and discuss recent equipment advancements, including cab and front axle suspension, ballasting techniques and guidance systems.

- Right Place. Right Product. Right Time. Accurate product placement is critical to the successful growth of a crop.

I attended a fantastic class yesterday hosted by AGCO’s own Seeding and Tillage expert, Bob Boelsen, and I learned so much! For example: did you know that Sunflower has over 140 models and sizes available, making it the broadest line of seeding and tillage equipment available? Check out the video below to see our Beloit manufacturing site where our Sunflower implements are made:
Do you use Sunflower seeding or tillage equipment? Where is your farm located and what are the conditions in your area right now?
