AGCO Corporation (NYSE:AGCO), a world-leading manufacturer and
distributor of agricultural equipment, is proud to announce its
participation as a founding member of the DKE Data-Hub initiative. This
participation is one example of how AGCO’s precision agriculture
strategy, Fuse®, continues to expand its open approach to
precision farming through new partners and alliances to provide better
solutions to its customers. Through the DKE Data-Hub, AGCO is working
with other leaders in the agricultural industry to solve data
communication and conversion problems for growers.
With release planned for 2018, the Data-Hub will tackle the issue of
allowing data transfer and conversion from multiple suppliers and OEMs
to communicate with each other. Rather than needing multiple
communication paths between technologies, the Data-Hub will provide a
neutral platform to streamline the data transfer process.
“AGCO’s participation in the DKE Data-Hub initiative will enable our
customers to optimize their agricultural production processes by
simplifying the transfer of data across multiple platforms,” says Matt
Rushing, vice president, Global Advanced Technology Solutions Product
Line at AGCO.
The DKE Data-Hub will be designed to improve efficiency, energy, work
organization and the use of operating supplies leading to better quality
production at lower costs. This barrier-free data exchange improves
operators’ ability to manage their data, allowing them to better utilize
new technologies to put the right amount of input products, such as
fertilizer, in the right place, at the right time, all while seeking to
protect the environment.
Other members of the DKE Data-Hub include Amazone, Grimme and Kuhn.
