DuPont Pioneer and AGCO Announce Global Collaboration

05/06/2014 @ 10:19am

DuPont Pioneer and AGCO Corporation are collaborating to bring wireless data transfer technology solutions to farmers in the U.S., Brazil, Canada, and key European countries. The agreement provides a seamless interface of data and farm management information between the two.

Pioneer's Encirca, a new whole-farm decision-making service designed to help growers improve productivity and profitability, is currently being introduced to North American corn and soybean farmers, with a global launch expected over time to support a wide range of crops and markets.

As part of the AGCO Fuse Technologies platform, growers can choose to have data collected through the company's VarioDoc, TaskDoc, and AgCommand systems and wirelessly transferred to Encirca.

"We are excited about the new addition of Pioneer Encirca services to the list of decision agriculture platforms compatible with VarioDoc, TaskDoc, and AgCommand, helping growers become more efficient in farm data and fleet management," says Matt Rushing, vice president, product line, Advanced Technology Solutions (ATS). "Fuse Technology’s open approach enables growers to integrate their AGCO equipment and decision agriculture technology with the trusted service providers and software partners they choose."

"This collaboration with AGCO is another significant milestone toward our whole-farm services strategy, enabled by industry-leading collaborations and advanced technologies, which works with growers to analyze and use their data to positively improve their bottom lines," says Alejandro Munoz, DuPont Pioneer president, global commercial business.
