Ames, Iowa – Ag Leader Technology, Inc. is pleased to announce their collaboration with AGCO in offering precision technology on AGCO Combines. For model year 2015 Gleaner S8 Series combines, Massey Ferguson 9505 Series and Challenger 500E combines, the option is now available to have an Ag Leader yield monitoring system factory-installed. Ag Leader® Integra and Versa displays are also available to be ordered separately.
“Adding a yield monitoring system with Ag Leader display to your combine allows the operator to view yield and moisture maps in real-time for instant feedback on yield performance while in the field,” said Roger Zielke, Product Manager. “Our time tested yield monitor will be a perfect addition for growers purchasing an AGCO combine.”
Ag Leader’s founder and owner, Al Myers, is credited for developing the first widely used yield monitor just over 20 years ago and has led the industry in developing precision technology. Today Ag Leader offers a complete line of precision farming products from planting through harvest through a global dealer network.
“We know that it is increasingly important for farmers to collect and analyze yield data to use in making management decisions as it has a significant impact to yield and the bottom line,” Zielke added. “We’re excited to pair our yield monitoring technology with a leading manufacturer to assist more growers with harvesting both crops and information.”
