As more farmers are using new technology in precision agriculture, they are gathering increasing amounts of machine and production data. With that comes the need for moving, storing, and utilizing that data more efficiently between people and devices.
To help farmers, John Deere is introducing Wireless Data Transfer to enable the wireless transmission of data between the GreenStar™ 3 2630 display, MyJohnDeere.com, and the producer’s farm management information system.
Kathy Michael, product manager, John Deere Intelligent Solutions Group, says with the introduction of Wireless Data Transfer and data sharing on MyJohnDeere.com, overall data collection, transfer, and management will be much easier. “Wireless Data Transfer is really exciting for our growers. They’re eliminating the use of USB sticks to get that information to their machines and get that documentation data back from the field.”
Kathy says full introduction of the wireless data system will be coming in 2014 but farmers can get a preview at the fall farm shows, starting with Farm Progress Show next week. [wpaudio url=”http://zimmcomm.biz/john-deere/jd-intro-13-wireless.mp3″ text=”Interview with John Deere’s Kathy Michael”]
