AGCO has joined the Nevonex partner network to make it easier for farmers to work seamlessly across their farm. Farmers are now enabled to deploy enhanced digital services and functions based on Nevonex on their existing AGCO farm equipment.

Nevonex offers an open digital ecosystem which enables more efficient processes in agriculture through connectivity and automation of equipment and workflows. Nevonex was developed by Bosch to enable new functions and automated processes on agricultural machinery. It ensures seamless use of a growing range of digital services from different providers.

Connecting and automating equipment and workflows

The Nevonex ecosystem provides a technical infrastructure through which various providers of agricultural technology, resources or services can offer useful functions and tools for connecting and automating equipment and workflows all along the entire agricultural process chain.

For this purpose, the partners develop application software, so-called Features, which are then executed directly on the corresponding agricultural machines.

The full integration of the Nevonex-enabled control unit into the electronic architecture enables active intervention in the machine functions and thus the automation of work processes and their documentation.

Connection of existing or retrofitted sensors of the agricultural machine

Further possibilities are offered by the comprehensive connection of existing or retrofitted sensors of the agricultural machine. For example, the current conditions in the field can be taken into account and higher yields or reduced costs can be achieved through more precise application of seeds, fertilisers or crop protection. Time-saving, direct data transmission to the farmer’s farm management system is also possible.

Through this Nevonex collaboration, AGCO joins other crop care, seed, Farm Management Information System (FMIS) and precision agriculture companies, including Corteva, MyEasyFarm, Syngenta, Topcon and Xarvio, to offer enhanced digital services on AGCO equipment while making these activities more sustainable through more efficient application of inputs.
