AGCO Corporation has announced its AgCommand API (Application Programming Interface) is now open to approved third party developers and service providers of farming applications, including management dashboards and mobile apps. This new capability will enable AGCO customers to access their machine data through their other farm and fleet management tools, the company says.
The AgCommand API allows some elements of AgCommand machine data to be integrated into the grower’s farm management platform of choice, says AGCO. AgCommand is a part of Fuse, AGCO’s approach to precision agriculture through technology products and services, and this API is “one way in which AGCO is taking an open approach, facilitating connections between customers and their other trusted providers.”

The first utilization of the AgCommand API was announced in late July with the integration between AGCO’s AgCommand system and the Trimble Connected Farm. This collaboration allows customers to access their AGCO machine data via AgCommand, in addition to their agronomic data through the VarioDoc connection, from within Trimble’s Connected Farm dashboard. This integration gives customers the ability to access both machine and task data within a single, Web browser-based user interface, allowing for a more streamlined approach to total farm management.
