For the past few years, PrecisionAg magazine has invited key precision ag product manufacturers and service providers to share with us information on their latest upgrades and newest items. On the following pages, you will find this data, along with select product pictures.
For 2015, Ag Leader predicts continuation of the evolution of wireless technologies in the precision agriculture market. “Being able to easily access your precision data at any time is crucial for growers as they continue making important management decisions on-the-go,” says Sam Worley, marketing product specialist. “Growers need access to their data while visiting with trusted advisors, landlords and while in the field. As more users turn to the cloud to store and access data and use wireless technology for remote support, the wireless technology segment will support it by adding more features.”
To tie into this trend, Ag Leader has introduced AgFiniti Map View. Released in January, AgFiniti Map View can be used in conjunction with SMS Basic and Advanced desktop software programs and AgFiniti to allow cloud access to a user’s precision data anywhere, anytime. “Data can be viewed on a user’s preferred Web-enabled device, including iPad (Apple), Android and Windows devices,” says Worley. “Because it’s used in conjunction with SMS, users can view data from all their precision displays, including Ag Leader Technology, AGCO, CNH, John Deere, Precision Planting, Trimble and more. Map View will allow the user to view their current location and compare statistics relevant to that GPS location while in the field, such as planting rates, hybrids, soil types and yield.”
