AGCO and The Climate Corporation have announced a “global data connectivity agreement” that will see AGCO customers have more and easier options for connecting with Climate’s FieldView platform.
“The Climate FieldView platform is the world’s most broadly connected and adopted farm insight and visualization platform, and AGCO is pleased to be creating a tighter connection to it,” says Chris Rhodes, director AGCO’s Fuse Business Development, in a statement.
According to Climate, the deal will provide farmers three ways to connect to its FieldView platform:
- Enables real-time data connectivity between the AGCO Connectivity Module (ACM), the company’s newest in-cab wireless technology, and farmers’ Climate FieldView accounts.
- Expands compatibility across all lines of AGCO equipment for the FieldView Drive device, which streams field data directly into the Climate FieldView platform.
- Continues to enable Climate FieldView data connectivity with Precision Planting’s 20/20 monitors.
“Through this new agreement with AGCO, more farmers around the world will be able to seamlessly get all their data in one place and maximize the value of that data with the Climate FieldView platform’s advanced analytics-based insights to make management decisions for their operations with confidence,” said Mike Stern, chief executive officer for The Climate Corp.
AGCO says some of its machines will be Climate FieldView ready, direct from the factory, in 2018, and that future announcements will provide more detail about availability and how to connect.
