Over at Ag Leader, the company is gearing up for 2014 to be an extremely active year for all things wireless. “Wireless technology and interconnectivity on the farm is set to revolutionize precision agriculture in 2014 by placing valuable data at the growers’ fingertips to assist with making profit-driven management decisions,” says Jenna Royer, marketing communications manager. “Precision ag data will become a ‘report card’ for evaluating performance to discover efficiencies and yield trends that will assist with decision making.”

According to Royer, Ag Leader plans to take advantage of this industry trend with its latest product offering — AgFiniti. “As information becomes more critical to decision-making and profitability, AgFiniti, Ag Leader’s new cloud-based platform, will become the hub of the growers’ operation,” says Royer. “Data from the field becomes information that can be accessed instantly from anywhere using a computer, smartphone, tablet or any Ag Leader display. Guidance lines, prescriptions, as-applied maps and other data files can be sent and received wirelessly. Files can be accessed from any device’s supported Web browser or by using SMS Software and shared with trusted advisors such as crop consultants or farm managers. Field activities can be managed and monitored from a user’s home office and field displays accessed remotely connecting all of your technologies, trusted advisors and operations.”

With AgFiniti, adds Royer, the grower has the freedom to choose the wireless data plan and hotspot device that works best in their area, making it a cost-effective and reliable solution. “Additionally, AgFiniti puts the grower in control of their data and who has access to it,” she says. “Growers have the ability to easily share their data with trusted advisors such as crop consultants, farm managers or their dealer and can grant access to view displays in the field from another location. Growers can also upload data layers from SMS (yield data, soil survey maps, field boundaries, etc.) for viewing on any device with a supported Web browser.”
