February 12, 2014 we released our latest firmware of 5.2. There are a lot of updates and improvements in the latest firmware and no matter your operation, there will be a feature you will enjoy! The first thing that you will notice about 5.2 is the home screen has changed. It has a green backdrop, but that is just the beginning! We have added tabs that make adjusting the operation more convenient. We can now change operators, configurations, fields, products, and rates, straight from the home screen. Also, we can access our grower/farm/field and configuration settings by selecting the wrench next to the tabs. As you can see in the picture, we have made the Ag Leader® Integra and Versa home screens to be a quick access screen.Keep Reading
Ag Leader’s newCloud-based Platform, AgFiniti®, puts information at the growers’ fingertips by providing tools to manage, access and share their valuable field data for use in making profit-driven management decisions on the farm.
Ag Leader® Integra or Versa™ display users simply need to purchase an Ag Leader USB Wi-Fi Adapter and a license to access a wireless internet network in the cab through any hotspot of their choice, including: smartphone, tablet, MiFi device or office Wi-Fi network.
“AgFiniti is an affordable and reliable solution for wireless connectivity in the field because it allows users the flexibility to choose the best wireless service carrier in their local area and hotspot device,” states Luke James, Software Sales Manager.
“What also makes AgFiniti different from other solutions on the market is our stance on data privacy. We know growers value their privacy and that’s why with AgFiniti the data is 100% theirs,” James adds.
Guidance lines, prescriptions, as-applied maps and more can be sent and received wirelessly from field to office and shared with trusted advisors such as dealers, co-ops or farm managers.
Additionally, AgFiniti Remote Support allows dealers or farm managers to connect to the user’s display in the field for viewing and trouble-shooting from another location to help resolve issues faster and reduce downtime.
AgFiniti is now available to order through Ag Leader dealers. For more information or to locate a dealer, visit agleader.com.

This cloud, just like the weather, is a gamechanger for the agriculture industry. Still, many questions about the cloud exist.Keep Reading

This week I had the privilege of visiting Mr. Frans Nouws in the Netherlands. Mr. Nouws is a lettuce grower who is now farming around 200ha, entirely for lettuce production. However, it was not always done on this scale. He started in partnership with his mother-in-law on 2ha about 25 years ago. They started off growing all kinds of produce including leeks, carrots and cucumbers but eventually specialised in lettuces. Now farming 200ha and exporting to places such as Moscow and Dubai, Mr. Nouws can be considered a specialist and certainly an innovator.Keep Reading
