For Case IH and New Holland equipment, Trimble now integrates with wireless connectivity via Trimble Ag Software and Case IH Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) Connect and New Holland Precision Land Management (PLM) Connect telematics platforms.

This new functionality will streamline the flow of data from the cab to the office including:

·         giving farmers more accurate field records

·         eliminating duplicate data entry

·         a better understanding of their production costs

Farmers can choose to share information with a trusted advisor to assist in creating fertility prescriptions, variable rate irrigation plans or other cost saving strategies. Data can be accessed from many places, including online, desktop and mobile sources.

"Allowing Case IH and New Holland customers to seamlessly transfer their task data into Trimble Ag Software aligns well with Trimble's continued focus on providing a complete solution for growers to manage a mixed fleet of vehicles and implements," says Darren Howie, general manager of Trimble’s Agriculture Business Solutions. “Whether it’s planting, application or harvest data, our customers now can import even more valuable information on a timely basis and make decisions based on activities carried out by their Case IH and New Holland precision ag solutions.”

Both AFS Connect (Case IH) and PLM Connect (New Holland) are telematics systems designed to transfer data wirelessly, securely and remotely between farm equipment and trusted farm management software, services or advisers.
