Joining forces

Pessl Instruments and John Deere Together in Precision Agriculture and Environmental Monitoring

[Weiz, Austria/Mannheim, Germany – Jun. 13, 2018] We are pleased to announce that Pessl Instruments and John Deere are entering into sales cooperation in the EU 28+ countries. The cooperation will be offered to all John Deere distributors and partner companies, giving them access to the complete Pessl Instruments product portfolio and support by sales and service teams and the group of agricultural experts. The integration of hardware will be done for John Deere Operations Center, thus further strengthening the leading position of both parties in precision agriculture.

Pessl Instruments holistic solution supports precision farm management in many aspects from the beginning until the end of farming season. Disease models are calculated on the basis of weather station data for more than 30 crops, weather forecast is localized and calibrated with on-site measured data, devices with soil moisture sensors and decision support systems (DSS) are used for irrigation management, electronic traps help monitor insect population, while on-site soil nutrient analysis solutions help monitor macro nutrients in the soil.

“We are joining more than 33 years of experience in environmental monitoring and offering tools for informed decision-making of Pessl Instruments with a range of John Deere’s Agricultural Management Solutions to further maximize the profitability, productivity, accuracy and overall performance of farming businesses,” explains the founder and CEO of Pessl Instruments, Gottfried Pessl.

Working smarter and thus saving time, money and stress while also getting higher profit from every hectare of land is no longer the future, but the present of agriculture. “Cooperation between John Deere and Pessl Instruments is another step towards improving performance and better-connected farm management and expands the range of AMS integrated products and services,” Simon Schowalter, Product Marketing Manager AMS – EU28+ explains.
