Gleaner will have a commemorative display in the booth along with its lineup of innovative harvesting equipment for 2023 in anticipation of next year’s anniversary.
GSI to Showcase GrainVue Grain Management System
GSI’s large exhibit in the AGCO booth will highlight its innovative GrainVue grain management system. GrainVue leverages digital cable technology to monitor stored grain temperature and moisture to provide alerts and automatic activation of fans to help prevent out-of-condition issues. The system uses cloud-based connectivity to enable remote management via mobile or desktop devices. With automatic updates and alerts, one person can manage multiple bins.
“Keeping a close eye on grain conditions and inventory lets growers pursue higher premiums and get the most out of every bushel they harvest.”
explains Greg Trame, director of technology sales for GSI.
Precision Ag Solutions from Fuse
Precision ag drives efficiencies across entire farming operations and AGCO’s Fuse technology will be on display throughout the booth and in the Fuse tent, which will be available between the Fendt and Massey Ferguson exhibits. Of particular interest will be Geo-Bird, a new and free operation planning tool for creating and optimizing way lines. Fuse’s precision ag experts will be on hand to help farmers manage their data across brands and accomplish more with less – a critical advantage to mixed-fleet operations as input costs increase.
