Precision Planting, a subsidiary of AGCO, has entered into an agreement to acquire the business and assets of Headsight, Inc., a precision agriculture harvesting company.

Since 1998, Headsight has designed and developed harvesting row guidance and height sensing technologies. Headsight’s flagship product is the family of header height sensors used in corn and grain harvesting.

These products are known for increasing harvested yield, reducing machine damage and operator fatigue, and improving overall harvesting efficiency by accurately maintaining the height of the header above the terrain, the company says.

“Headsight’s success has been driven by their passion for improving farmers’ harvesting operations around the world,” says Justin Kauffman, general manager, Precision Planting. “We are excited about their continued global growth opportunities as they serve farmers of all brands of harvesting row equipment. Headsight offers an innovative set of capabilities that are a great complement to AGCO’s vision of being the trusted partner for industry­ leading, smart farming solutions and enabling precision agriculture growth. We are excited to work with the Headsight team to offer farmers a range of industry-leading, precision ag technologies across the crop cycle that help them maximize their value and output while minimizing inputs and impact.”

Precision Planting intends to retain the Headsight team and maintain its operations in Bremen, Indiana.
