AGXTEND™ is the first brand specializing in emerging precision farming and ISOBUS solutions in the agricultural industry to provide customers with comprehensive access to a range of breakthrough and dynamic precision farming solutions from strategic partner companies, shortening their time to market, and facilitating wide-scale adoption.
The AGXTEND™ range of products can be fully integrated into Case IH’s AFS, STEYR’s S-TECH and New Holland Agriculture’s PLM existing precision farming platforms. Additionally, a full range of competitor tractors, harvesting equipment and implements will be able to use these solutions, providing technical compatibility criteria are met. These products are an important component of CNH Industrial’s approach to Precision Farming Solutions, which empower customers to select the service or tool which is right for them and enable them to maintain control of their data with opt-in logic.
The AGXTEND™ products have the potential to significantly enhance the sustainability of agribusinesses through the resultant reduction in fuel consumption as well as the targeting of and eventual reduction in both fertilizer and crop protection products. Furthermore, the commercialization of innovative zero-chemical weed control through the precision use of electric pulses will substantially reduce a farm’s environmental impact by providing an effective and more sustainable alternative to agrochemicals.
Customers will be able to purchase AGXTEND™ products and services from Case IH, STEYR and New Holland dealers. A phased rollout is foreseen throughout the first quarter of 2019 across the entire EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) Region and a full suite of services will be available, comprising pre-purchase assistance, training and ongoing support services to facilitate customers with the continual optimization of these products and technologies.
