AGCO Corp., a manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, announced today a new digital partnership with The Climate Corp., a subsidiary of Monsanto Company that will provide AGCO customers the option to connect with The Climate Corp.’s Climate FieldView platform. AGCO’s partnership with The Climate Corp. is a product of Fuse and its open approach to agriculture, which focuses on helping customers optimize their farms through technology integration and connectivity.
AGCO customers will be able to connect to the Climate FieldView platform through FieldView Drive device, AGCO’s Precision Planting 20/20 SeedSense Display, or through application program interfaces (APIs) beginning late 2017. The connection to the Climate FieldView platform provides AGCO customers with real time visualization of farm data from as-planted maps to yield maps, as well as access to a digital agriculture platform where customers can compare data and make agronomic decisions for the next season. Certain AGCO machines will be Climate FieldView ready, direct from the factory later in 2018. Future announcements will provide more detail about availability and how to connect.
