Joint solution to reduce idle time, increase revenue-generating activities and quality of service to farmers.

AGCO is enabling a direct connection with Solinftec on telemetry-equipped RoGator and TerraGator application equipment. Solinftec’s portfolio of solutions includes on-board computers, weather stations, soil sensors, telemetry networks, proprietary algorithms and the real-time generation of actionable insights generating operational efficiency and agronomic efficacy.

See parameters from connected AGCO machines

The new, direct connection offers AGCO customers with active AGCO Connect subscriptions the option to subscribe to the Solinftec offering without purchasing and installing additional telemetry hardware, which streamlines access to Solinftec’s solution for the connected AGCO fleet.

Through this connection, Solinftec customers will be able to accurately see parameters from their connected AGCO machines modeled on the AI Solinftec platform to get an accurate picture of where inefficiencies are occurring and how they can be addressed in real time.

Best efficiency application scenarios

Customers can access this information and generate efficiency reports on the cloud-based Solinftec platform at any time. The software calculates the best efficiency application scenarios and recommends a dispatching model for scheduling operators. Weather information is also integrated into the Solinftec solution, allowing users to modify their original plan based on potential weather events.

In 2019, AGCO and Solinftec entered a strategic partnership focused on bringing greater efficiency to agricultural operations in South America, with AGCO dealers in the region offering the Solinftec solution as an aftermarket product. The results Solinftec delivered in both sugar cane and row crop operations led the two companies to agree to jointly present the solution on application equipment in the North American market.

Improvement in annual revenue

Solinftec’s end-to-end solutions aim to maximise logistical efficiency across the supply chain, eliminating bottlenecks in application and tendering. According to AGCO, across the 4 million applied acres deploying the company’s solution in the United States’ Corn Belt, customers have realised a significant improvement in their annual revenue by increasing the number of applied acres per machine per year by up to 5,000 acres.

Globally, Solinftec has over 100,000 daily users, coverage of 22 million acres, and over 85% market share in the sugar cane segment in Brazil where the company began.
