Soil Sampling Tips

April 8, 2014 - We asked Chris Eschhofen of Eschhofen Systems to give us some quick tips in soil sampling.  His company samples thousands of acres in Northwest Ohio while providing consulting services from the collected data.  Chris utilizes the Farm Works™ Mobile software and the rugged Yuma® computer.  One of the reasons he has enjoyed the Yuma was due to the ruggedness and large screen – two features that are very important in terms of outside use.

AGCO Connectivity Announcement

February 24, 2014 - DULUTH, Ga. — AGCO, Your Agriculture Company (NYSE:AGCO), announces a new interoperability between Trimble’s Farm Works Software® and VarioDoc™ and TaskDoc™ as part of its Fuse™ Technologies initiative. This interoperability will allow operators to transfer task files between their machine’s cab and the Farm Works Software.

AGCO’s VarioDoc and TaskDoc are task file management systems that allow operators to wirelessly transfer task files between the machine and office without the need for a data card or USB flash drive. This eliminates the need for the operator to remember to save information to a data card or USB flash drive, and physically transfer it to the farm office. Transferring task files wirelessly ensures that all information is securely and efficiently transferred to the office for use in future management decisions and record keeping.
