Growing range of compatible agricultural machinery
AGCO, the global manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, is expanding the NEVONEX partner network which adds well-known brands, including Fendt®, Massey Ferguson®, Valtra® and others to the existing three major agricultural machinery brands which are part of NEVONEX: AMAZONE, RAUCH and LEMKEN. Farmers using AGCO equipment will be able to use new digital services on the NEVONEX platform. NEVONEX access to AGCO machines will be enabled through standard ISOBUS interfaces. “We are pleased to innovate with Bosch as a continuation of our ongoing push to make data management easier for farmers, so they ultimately unlock more value for their operations,” says Seth Crawford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Precision Ag and Digital for AGCO.
Individual n:n data exchange also for NEVONEX
NEVONEX is intensifying its joint activities with the agrirouter data exchange platform from DKE-Data. This enhancement will lower market entry barriers and make it easier for farmers and contractors to start with digital services. In future, NEVONEX-compatible machines can be quickly and easily connected to the agrirouter via the digital service “agrirouter connector”. In this way both worlds will work together seamlessly from the farmers’ point of view.
Additional digital services and solutions to make the farmer’s work easier
Inmarsat, the world’s leading mobile satellite communications services provider is enabling smart agriculture in remote places around the world, reliably connecting vehicles, machinery, animals and people wherever they are. Inmarsat will provide its connectivity services for integration with the NEVONEX ecosystem, to enable use cases in remote areas with limited terrestrial connectivity.
iXMAP, developer of smart farming solutions, is preparing digital services based on NEVONEX to support certification solutions. In addition, they are developing “white label” services that can be marketed and used by third parties. In this way, the expert knowledge of iXMAP for sustainable agriculture will be made directly available on agricultural machinery. The ISOBUS Experts of OSB AG stand for ISOBUS know-how and ISOBUS solutions in the agricultural industry. They will open their ISOBUS dongle for NEVONEX and thus make it easier for farmers to use the ecosystem. In near future, AGvisorPRO Inc will also be part of the partner network. Their agriculture app is designed to remotely connect farmers and ranchers in real-time with agronomic experts to provide support agronomy and crop protection.
The partner network
NEVONEX powered by Bosch, together with renowned partners in the agricultural industry, enables the execution of digital services directly on agricultural machinery. The joint ecosystem approach makes new and existing agricultural machinery smarter with the help of the NEVONEX retrofit kit and the digital services, thus simplifying the farmer’s work processes.
In addition to the five new members, 17 partners and cooperations are already part of NEVONEX. These are the agricultural machinery manufacturers AMAZONE, LEMKEN and RAUCH; the Agri-input companies: Corteva Agriscience, Syngenta, Xarvio (BASF) and Yara; the hardware component manufacturers: Pessl Instruments and Topcon; the software companies: DHI and MyEasyFarm; the agricultural machinery dealers: geo-konzept and ZG Raiffeisen as well as cooperation with federal associations and universities: LandBauTechnik, DEULA, University of Hohenheim and Technical University of Munich. An early adopter program is currently running for NEVONEX with chosen partners. This will be significantly expanded in 2021 and will be freely accessible to farmers and contractors in selected regions in Europe, North and Latin America.
