AGCO Corp. announced it has entered into an agreement with Precision Planting — an affiliate and business of The Climate Corporation — that introduces factory integration of select Precision Planting technology to AGCO's White planters line.

New options will soon be available to give customers improved performance and the ability to utilize new and emerging technologies.

Continuing with AGCO's Fuse Technologies approach to open architecture, the agreement also enables farmers to integrate their on-farm data into The Climate Corporation’s digital agriculture platform. This data connection enhances farmers’ ability to seamlessly and easily collect data in one place and gain personalized insights through digital tools to help them make more informed decisions about their operations.

AGCO will be announcing new options and models of its White Planters line in the coming months that will include technologies made available from Precision Planting.

"Our focus is to continue to achieve that high level of accuracy while giving farmers expanded access to the latest in top-performing technologies, practices and products,” says John Menssen, marketing manager for seeding and tillage at AGCO.

Other AGCO strategic alignments include Bayer, DuPont, BASF, Connected Farm and Slingshot.
