Topcon Precision Agriculture will develop a line of precision ag products for Same Deutz-Fahr (SDF) tractors and combines under an agreement announced in September.
SDF, a leading manufacturer of tractors, combines, engines and agricultural equipment, will market the resulting products under its Agrosky precision farming products brand. The partnership will allow the entire range of SDF products to be equipped with precision farming devices, ranging from automatic steering to sophisticated machine-control systems, the companies state. The first new Agrosky products for tractors and combines will be exhibited in November at Agritechnica 2011 in Hanover, Germany.
“From the partnership with Topcon we expect to be able to offer our clients precision farming systems that are cutting-edge in the market, always in line with their requirements and technological processes, which, in this sector, are constantly changing,” says Franco Artoni, SDF’s sales, marketing and after sales executive director.
SDF products, which are marketed worldwide, are marketed under the Same, Deutz-Fahr, Lamborghini and Hürlimann brands. Topcon Precision Agriculture is a business unit of Topcon Positioning Systems, Inc., which designs and manufactures precise positioning products and solutions for the global surveying, construction, agriculture, civil engineering, mapping and GIS, asset management and mobile control markets.
