In this AgNerd Cloud we’re going to take a more in-depth look at New Holland’s Precision Land Management (PLM) platform with Chris Carrier, Marketing Manager, Precision Land Management & T7 Series. I visited with Chris in his office recently to talk about PLM.
New Holland’s PLM has a growing number of resources and functionalities that you can find on the PLM Portal. This can also be found within MyNewHolland.com. As you can see from the iPad image, PLM is also being heavily integrated into mobile technology.
In my conversation with Chris we first talk about the evolution of PLM over a period of years into the platform it is today. He says that they’re moving into the new field of data and connectivity taking another step beyond things like auto guidance and swath control. The new PLM Connect is helping farmers better manage and optimize their fleets with easier data transfer using the cloud.
In our interview Chris talks about the options for different products in the PLM lineup. One of those is the PLM Calculator App that let’s you figure out the return on investment of using precision technology. You enter a number of parameters like field sizes to get instant feedback on the payback.
When it comes to training Chris points to their PLM Academy. This includes an app, web-based and instructor led training.
