Help is available to meet farm and business needs today and in the future. John Deere introduces FarmSight — a comprehensive and integrated suite of technology solutions. This array of services provides help for farmers in the following areas:
• Machine optimization: FarmSight provides solutions that get the most out of machinery on the farm using precision technology and wireless data networks for higher productivity and increased uptime.
• Logistics optimization: The new technology will assist producers to better manage logistics and machinery from remote locations through a variety of fleet-management solutions and increased machine-to-machine communication.
• Ag decision support: FarmSight includes user-friendly monitors, sensors and wireless networks that provide easy access to machinery and agronomic data essential to making proactive management decisions for your operation.
“The FarmSight global suite of solutions uses integrated, wireless technology that links the equipment, owners, operators, dealers and agricultural consultants to provide even more productivity to your farm or business,” says Jerry Roell, John Deere’s director of coordinated farm and worksite. “We are investing in networking tools that will help farmers manage data and information from their machinery easily and more efficiently in order to assist in making better decisions for their operations.”
Machinery will be able to communicate remotely from the field about overall machine performance. This intelligent, automated technology will bring more precision, convenience and uptime to a producer’s equipment operation.
“These intelligent machines also will be able to talk to each other,” Roell explains. “Imagine a combine harvesting in the field that is ready to unload on-the-go. The tractor operator can see the fill-status of the combine on a monitor in the tractor and then pull the grain cart to a predetermined spot (identified by the monitor) near the combine to begin the unloading process. The machines will lock on to each other while the combine maintains its harvesting speed. The combine operator can automatically control the speed of the tractor, nudging it for an even fill of the grain cart. This technology will improve overall harvest efficiency by automating machinery for non-stop harvest production.”
