John Deere announced a partnership with Agricon to better serve its customers in agronomic digital services.
The services will be offered as agronomic Farm Sight Service Packages through the John Deere dealer.
German company Agricon GmbH provides solutions for digital plant cultivation. The company supports farmers using their machines, operating resources and work time more efficiently utilising digital plant cultivation services and technologies.
Through its partner network, the John Deere dealers together with Agricon will make digital solutions available to its customers. The partnership is to expand the ability for John Deere dealers to leverage digital technology to fully exploit the economic value.
According to John Deere, today’s farmers collect a huge amount of data already but are often challenged with decoding it and using the information for their next operation to reduce inputs and maximise yields in a measurable way. The partnership with Agricon is to provide farmers with the right tools.

“You have to start from the problem,” explains Peer Leithold, CEO of Agricon GmbH. “Operation modes that slow down the efficiency or hinder the work of a farmer need to be identified and improved through innovations. Digital technologies offer an enormous toolbox for this.”
The partnership is to bring opportunities to further enhance the capabilities of the John Deere Operations Center. Customers benefit from connecting machines, fields, operators and agronomic support.
This, syas John Deere, paves the way to a ‘fully connected and automated farm’, while ensuring customers maintain full control over their data.
Both companies are jointly represented on the Agritechnica in hall 13 on the John Deere booth C40.
