Hexagon at Agrishow 2019
Florianópolis, Brazil (February 12, 2019) - From cultivation planning to harvesting logistics, Hexagon is bringing products that synchronise all agricultural processes to Agrishow 2019.
Hexagon will showcase how synchronisation of all processes in agriculture can reduce costs and increase productivity in the field. The company has developed a platform of digital solutions that optimise end-to-end agricultural activities from cultivation planning to harvesting transportation. This fair, the largest Brazilian showcase of agricultural technologies, takes place from 29 April to 3 May in Ribeirão Preto (SP).
"We still see a lot of fragmentation in the application of technologies in the field, negatively reflecting the performance of the agricultural industry,” said Bernardo de Castro, president of Hexagon's Agriculture division. “At Hexagon, we believe that integrating solutions is the biggest challenge for agribusiness and we have developed HxGN AgrOn, a complete platform capable of talking to existing systems."
At the Hexagon booth, agricultural and forestry managers will be able to check out the AgrOn Cultivation and AgrOn Harvesting portfolios with Planning & Optimisation, Monitoring & Operations Management and Machine Automation solutions. The products make it possible to connect, synchronise and optimise all cultivation, harvest and transportation processes for sugarcane, forestry and grain businesses.
Machine and implement manufacturers will have the opportunity to experience the AgrOn Ti5 and Ti7 displays and the AgrOn Core Box onboard controller. Integrated with farm machinery, these solutions capture vital data to monitor and manage cultivation, harvesting and logistics processes. The AgrOn Monitoring & Operation Management and AgrOn Remote Access solutions will also be on display – which provide real operation control and technical assistance and remote calibration systems, respectively.
Distributors and rural producers will be able to see and test Machine Automation solution products, including AgrOn Auto Steering, AgrOn Fertilisation Control and AgrOn Sprayer Control. All feature built-in sensors and state-of-the-art actuators, essential technologies to optimise operations that result in economy and cost savings.
Integrated solution - The HxGN AgrOn platform is divided into AgrOn Cultivation, AgrOn Harvesting and AgrOn OEM. Each of these portfolios integrates product-based solutions that adapt to the customer's demands. Control is the key word. All systems support managers in the agricultural and forestry sectors to ensure that all processes are run in a way that maximises efficiency at the lowest cost.
