Harvesting

Get ready for harvesting! Having your machines well-maintained, prepared and optimally set-up when it’s time to get into the field is important to catch the optimal conditions for harvesting high quality and quantity of crops.

Preventative maintenance is key to ensuring maximum uptime. Be certain you have everything in place for the harvesting season. Your AGCO dealer can conduct pre-season inspections to identify and replace worn-out parts before they break in the field.

Do you want your dealer to conduct a pre-harvest inspection for your equipment?

The pre-season inspection has discovered a belt that is almost worn-out. Would you like to get this replaced now before you go to the field?

Do you want to pre-schedule the recommended in-season maintenance with your dealer now, according to your expected downtimes? Click the time on your calendar when you would like to schedule your next maintenance.

Prevention and visibility go hand-in-hand. In addition to maintaining regular service intervals for your equipment, Fuse Connected Services enabled by AgCommand lets you and, if you decide to, your dealer monitor your machines in real-time while they are working.

This means maximum insight into your operation at all times, and help monitoring your operation when you need it most.

Planting

When it comes to planting, the highest level of precision is required to ensure the highest yields and maximum profit at harvest. Planting the optimal amount of seeds exactly at the right position is critical, and guidance in combination with rate & section control will allow you to achieve this.

In addition to these tools, your dealer can further improve your operation, such as offering recommended training to help you and your operators get the most out of your equipment and technology products.

The highest level of precision guidance with up to +/- 2 cm path-to-path accuracy with a 6 or even 15 meter planter in motion can be done.

Use your automatic guidance and steering to position the seed exactly in line, whether you choose A-B lines, A+ angle, contour or circles for your field operation.

Once you have defined your settings you can use them again anytime and easily transfer to other machines.

Automatic guidance saves your field and implement settings, such as waylines, obstacles, field boundaries, worked area and markers.

Do you want to use guidance for planting?

What is the optimal guidance accuracy level for planting in terms of cost-benefit-relationship?

The Fuse open approach means you have more choices in your guidance solution than any other OEM. AGCO’s next generation of guidance systems offer choice of receiver and correction signal source in addition to accuracy level.

Customers who already use Trimble guidance systems or who need broad geographic coverage may opt for the Trimble receiver. AGCO’s NovAtel receiver offers the same levels of accuracy.

Which is your preferred signal receiver?

Rate control allows you to plant continuously with the optimal seed spacing and depth. In addition, you can switch sections on and off at the headlands or edges of the field with section control, to prevent undesired overlapping.

Rate and section control from Fuse Technologies enables maximum yields, saves money on input costs and reduces waste.

Use section control to avoid wasting valuable seeds: tap the green boxes outside the field boundary to shut off those sections.

Utilizing technology to improve your planting is a strategic, long-term business decision to get the most out of your field.

To ensure you also get the most out of your equipment and technology, use Fuse Connected Services from your dealer. Get the service and support you need for an optimal planting season, including training for operators.

Your dealer is ready to assist you with targeted training and hands-on support to make sure your settings are just right.

Congratulations on your recent planter purchase! To make the most of it, your AGCO dealer can help you with proper set-up and calibrations. In addition, don’t forget to set your operators up for success with hands-on training for the new equipment.

You’ll enjoy peace of mind knowing your operation is running smoothly with your machine’s settings optimized and your operators trained and ready to go. Let’s get to work!

Do you want to engage your dealer’s services for setting up your new planter and to train you and your operators on the optimal machine settings?

Analysis

Using guidance with the receiver choice that best suits your needs means more accurate planting with less effort. Rate and section control helps you plant exactly the right amount of seeds, where they need to be, saving money on seeds you don't need. By taking advantage of Fuse Connected Services recommendations for new product setup and operator training, your AGCO dealers helps you run a smooth operation. Your decisions increased your operational efficiency by X.xx%.

Crop Care

To grow your plants in the most profitable way, you must make several critical decisions in order to apply the right amount of fertilizer and treatments depending on soil, moisture and weather conditions.

Use field data from previous crop cycle phases and seasons to help make the right decisions.

With the newest generation of AgControl, Fuse offers you a solution to leverage your prescription maps when applying multiple products at the same time.

Based on the map data, a combination of up to five products can be applied variably at precisely the right spots in the field.

Check the boxes to set variable rates for applying multiple products to your growing crops.

AgControl’s live as-applied mapping gives the operator full visbility into the application real-time. Monitor the work and make adjustments on the go, if necessary.

Now lets see how using alerts can help you prioritize what needs your attention when.

As part of your Fuse Connected Services package, AgCommand offers a variety of alerts based on machine thresholds and other indicators.

Based on your preferences, alerts can be shared and seen by you, your farm manager, operators and your dealer.

Alert!
