Hemisphere GPS Expands AgJunction® Compatibility with John Deere AgLogic™ Integration
CALGARY, May 24, 2012 /CNW/ - (TSX:HEM) Hemisphere GPS today announced the integration of the John Deere AgLogic fleet logistics management solution with AgJunction, its precision agriculture data services platform. Through the AgJunction cloud-based system, agricultural service providers such as fertilizer dealers, agronomists and co-ops benefit from the seamless two-way transfer of data and in-field work order management. The effective use of precision agriculture data can result in lower input costs and environmental impact and generate a higher crop yield per acre.
The new integration with AgLogic expands AgJunction's compatibility with in-field systems. Agriculture service providers can use the advanced precision agriculture tools in AgJunction along with AgJunction's electronic work order system to compile jobs to be executed in the field. Service providers can then transfer these jobs and precision agriculture data wirelessly to the field using their existing AgLogic system - no additional hardware is needed to support the transfer of AgJunction data and work orders.
"Our rapid response to market needs and innovation are enhanced through the integration of complementary technology," said Jeff Dearborn, General Manager of AgJunction at Hemisphere GPS. "Our continuous effort to expand AgJunction compatibility adds greater size and potential to our addressable market."
John Deere AgLogic is now available for use with AgJunction. For more information about AgJunction visit www.agjunction.com.
