Technology Experts Were at Agritechnica to Showcase Precision Farming Products

By Bernhard Schmitz

AGCO’s new technology strategy, FuseTM Technologies, was a major component of AGCO’s presence recently at Agritechnica, the world’s largest exhibition of agricultural machinery and equipment. Held in Hanover, Germany, from November 12-16, 2013, the show attracted 450,000 visitors from across the globe.

Fuse Interactive Smart Farm

The Fuse Technologies interactive smart farm operated on a video game platform and showed how Fuse products help growers in each phase of the crop cycle.

Show attendees could experience Fuse products and learn more about the strategy in several ways. The Fuse booth was located at the center of the AGCO floor plan, where visitors could interact with touch screen stations to learn about the Fuse connected strategy.

The Fuse booth also included the interactive smart farm display that showed how Fuse Technologies helps growers through each phase of the crop cycle. Eric Hansotia, Senior Vice President of Global Harvesting and ATS, and Helmut Endres, Senior Vice President of Engineering Worldwide both visited the Fuse booth and interacted with the Fuse smart farm screen.

After learning about what Fuse is and how it helps growers, visitors could venture out to each brand area—Challenger, Fendt, GSI, Massey Ferguson and Valtra, as well as Fella—which featured technology stands staffed with experts ready to answer attendees’ precision farming questions.

Show attendees could interact with each brand’s precision farming products, especially some of the new products that made their debut at the show such as VarioGuide Light and the latest AgCommandTM integrations.

Additionally, AGCO’s own Matt Rushing, Vice President of Product Management, Advanced Technology Solutions (ATS) and Electronics Functional Group, was on-hand at the Massey Ferguson stand to explain the Fuse Technologies strategy: click here to see the video.

Valtra Unlimited Studio Takes Customising To The Next Level

The new Valtra Unlimited customisation studio has opened at Valtra factory in Suolahti, Finland. The studio can fit any accessories and equipment that are not available directly from the production line during the normal manufacturing process.

As its name suggests, the Unlimited studio can fit any equipment that the customer orders as long as they work and that they comply with traffic regulations and requirements for type approval.

If a customer wants a tractor painted gold, or a driver’s seat covered in special leather, the Unlimited studio can oblige. In practice most equipment wishes will be related to the tasks to be performed by the customer’s tractor, such as auxiliary hydraulics, reversing cameras, forest equipment, central lubrication systems, flashing lights etc. In addition to customised features, all Unlimited tractors come with stylish Unlimited floor mats, seat covers, steering wheel logo and decal.

Initially the Unlimited service was offered only in Finland, but from autumn 2013 Valtra begin offering it also to customers across and beyond Europe. Customers can order Unlimited options directly from their Valtra dealer, so neither the customer nor the salesperson has to transport the tractor back and forth to fit additional equipments. In principle, everything from the initial order to warranty matters are handled by the same place.

For more information and an overview of the most popular Unlimited accessories visit www.valtra.com/unlimited.

Alcohol lock
An alcohol lock is only one example of the Unlimited studio offering. In many municipalities this safety feature is required on tractors used for road maintenance.

 In New Zealand, the highly professional dealer group attending the training included dealer principals, sales staff and technical support staff. All were given the opportunity to evaluate the systems on display in real time with a mix of Valtra, Fendt and Massey Ferguson tractors equipped with AGCO’s technology products.

 Taking an active role in enhancing dealers’ knowledge base, AGCO Australia’s ATS Product Manager, Jeremy Duniam, was pleased with the training that included classroom style learning as well as practical demonstrations of the products.

 “The dealer training was extremely productive and was received very well by all participating. It is always rewarding to see dealer staff remain behind after the day sessions have finished to spend more time getting familiar with the systems. The dealer network in New Zealand is very professional in their approach. Their knowledge of ATS solutions will equip New Zealand farmers with innovative technology solutions, which is the future of farming.” Jeremy said.
