WATCH NOW: Joining the Plots – Roundtable with Tuckwells Group (John Deere), AGCO and CLAAS

Join the Farmplan team with representatives from Tuckwells Group (John Deere), AGCO and CLAAS as we discuss the value behind the efficient use of data on farm.

By taking advantage of the integrations that are currently on offer, the data that can be available from farming operations can be very effectively used to increase the accuracy of farm records.

Sometimes the basics can get overlooked, but better farm management records means better traceability and compliance, better performance analysis and more informed decision making.
