AGRO Corporation announced on Thursday that it has developed its next generation of integrated technology for farm machinery to help growers.
Farmers will now have a better choice of receivers that use farm equipment to process the positioning information sent from the global navigation satellite system (GNSS). Farmers can now choose the accuracy level, correction source and the GNSS receiver, either Trimble or NovAtel.
The new technology is a huge upgrade for VarioGuide and Auto-Guide; VarioGuide is used by AGCO’s Fendt machines while Auto-Guide is used in all other AGCO models. The new guidance models will help farmers with guidance and correction signal choices better than any other manufacturer currently on the market.
"Growers need solutions focused on reducing farm waste and improving yields," said Matt Rushing, vice president, Global Advanced Technology Solutions (ATS) Product Line at AGCO. "Aligning with our Fuse promise, this new technology is about openness and facilitation, not limitation. To do this, we're changing the way we deploy our technology to let customers choose what is best for them. With the support of new partners like Trimble and NovAtel, our customers now have more freedom and flexibility than ever before, and AGCO adds to its ever expanding list of Fuse partners."
These new products will be available globally in the third and fourth quarters this year, primarily on select tractors and combines in North America and tractors in Western Europe.
