Through a unique air system, seed tube design, calibration system and low or no-wear parts, AGCO’s White Planters gives farmers the ability to achieve and maintain remarkably consistent planting accuracy.

The agreement between AGCO and Precision Planting among AGCO’s global strategy to bring innovative and open solutions to its customers and dealers, according to GCO senior vice-president Global Crop Cycle, Advanced Technology Solutions and Dealer Tech Support Eric Hansotia.

According to AGCO, new options will soon be available to give customers improved performance and the ability to utilise new and emerging technologies.

The new agreement enables farmers to integrate on-farm data into the Climate Corporation’s digital agriculture platform. Thie enhances the farmers’ ability to seamlessly and easily collect data and gain personalised insights into crops, which would eventually enable them to make better, informed decisions pertaining to farming.

Marketing manager for seeding and tillage at AGCO John Menssen said, “We work closely with growers, designers and partners to develop what farmers want and need in a planter. The addition of Precision Planting technology will give farmers new options in today’s planting environment.”

Climate Corporation president and chief operating officer Mike Stern added, “Through this agreement, we’re pleased to provide farmers with two ways to improve operations. We’re making it easy for farmers to access the latest Precision Planting technology on AGCO planters to enhance planting performance, and we’re enabling them to seamlessly integrate on-farm data into their climate accounts to help them make more informed decisions about their operations.”
