DuPont Pioneer and AGCO Corporation announced a global collaboration to bring wireless data transfer technology solutions to farmers in leading agricultural markets, including the United States, Canada, Brazil and key European countries. The agreement will allow seamless interface of data and farm management information between AGCO equipment and Encirca services, the new whole-farm decision solutions offering from Pioneer that is designed to help growers improve their productivity and profitability.

Seamless data transfer is an important technology enabler for EncircaSM services, which are currently being rolled out in North America to corn and soybean farmers and can be offered globally over time to support a wide range of crops and markets.

As part of the AGCO Fuse Technologies platform, as well as the commitment by Pioneer to offer brand neutral decision agriculture services, growers can choose to have data collected through AGCO’s VarioDoc, TaskDoc and AgCommand systems wirelessly transferred to Pioneer Encirca services. AGCO’s VarioDoc and TaskDoc are task file management systems that allow growers to conveniently and securely transfer task files between their farm machines and office without the need for a data card, portable memory drive or the physical transfer of devices. AgCommand is AGCO’s fleet and asset management system that provides growers, contractors and managers with instant access to a wide range of information about equipment working in the fields or traveling on the road.

“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,” said 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.”

“Pioneer is a leader in decision agriculture solutions that put growers’ needs for flexibility and convenience first,” said Alejandro Munoz, DuPont Pioneer vice president, Global Commercial Business. “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.”

VarioDoc is available as optional equipment on most Fendt tractors, forage harvesters and combines; TaskDoc is now available on select Massey Ferguson combines with more AGCO products planned in the future. AgCommand is a standard feature on many Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson and Valtra machines.
