DuPont Pioneer and AGCO Corporation have announced a global collaboration to bring wireless data transfer technology solutions to farmers in leading agricultural markets, including the U.S., Canada, Brazil, and key European countries.
The agreement will allow seamless interface of data and farm management information between AGCO equipment and Encirca services, the new whole-farm decision solutions offering from Pioneer designed to help growers improve productivity and profitability.
Seamless data transfer is an important technology ability for Encirca services which is being rolled out in North America to corn and soybean farmers, and can be offered globally over time to support a wide range of crops and markets.
As part of the AGCO Fuse Technologies platform, plus the commitment by Pioneer to offer brand neutral decision agriculture services, growers can choose to have data collected through AGCO’s VarioDoc, TaskDoc, and AgCommand systems wirelessly transferred to Pioneer Encirca services.
AGCO’s VarioDoc and TaskDoc are task file management systems which allow growers to conveniently and securely transfer task files between farm machines and the office without a data card, portable memory drive, or the physical transfer of devices.
AgCommand is AGCO’s fleet and asset management system which provides growers, contractors, and managers with instant access to a wide range of information about equipment in the field or traveling on the road.
