DuPont, AGCO collaborate for wireless data transfer services

DuPont Pioneer and AGCO have announced a partnership that will bring wireless data transfer technology to farmers in the U.S., Canada, Brazil and Europe. The collaboration will allow for AGCO equipment and EncircaSM services to seamlessly transfer information.

EncircaSM services are now being offered in North America to corn and soygran growers. And 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 EncircaSM services. AGCO’s VarioDoc and TaskDoc are task file management systems that allow growers to 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. 

VarioDoc is available as optional equipment on most Fendt tractors, forage harvesters and combines; TaskDoc is now available on certain 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.
