Deere & Company had new technologies from the John Deere brand and John Deere Insurance Company to discuss on the exhibit floor of Ag Connect Expo.
John Deere Insurance Company has 750 agents that can now help their policy holders use the data on GreenStar precision ag components for government reporting to the Farm Service Agency and Risk Management Agency. Called Automated Crop Reporting, the service streamlines the reporting process and the insurance agent verifies planted area and yields .
On the machinery side, using JD Link, farmers can connect their machinery in the field to their farm office, dealer, or smart phone in their pocket via a cellular connection. JD Link Select allows for data transfer with any brand, model of machinery and can provide set maintenance alerts or geo-fencing. JD Link Ultimate connects into the CANBUS of 8R Tractors to provide further detail in machinery performance monitoring with 15 items reported wireless from the machine.
