If you follow any Fendt social media (if you don’t, you should!), you’ve likely seen that two of the all new Fendt 900 Gent 6 series tractors have been on a tour of the United States and Canada throughout July and August. We used AGCO’s next generation telemetry solution, AGCO Connect, to track the two tractors as they traveled thousands of miles and visited more than twenty locations over the six week period. To relive the journey, search for #FendtNAroadshow.
The roadshow will culminate at this year’s Farm Progress Show in Decatur, IL, from August 27-29, 2019. AGCO Connect made its debut in North America in early July and will officially launch at Farm Progress alongside the Fendt 900 Gen6 Series tractors. Show attendees can find our Fuse® smart farming experts on AGCO lot 333 inside the grain bin. A new, interactive smart farming display will be situated as a stop along the IDEAL™ audio tour, which will include information about Connect and AGCO’s entire smart farming portfolio.
Whether you can make it to the show or not, read below take a moment to “connect”:
