AGCO a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural machinery and precision ag technology, announced that AGCO dealers will now offer the NEXT Machine Management solution with the objective of bringing simplified electronic documentation requirements and field task management to more European farmers. AGCO will offer the licenses for free for a limited time to AGCO machine owners. 

NEXT Machine Management is a cloud-based software developed by a consortium of equipment manufacturers called the Agriculture Application Group (AAG). In addition to AGCO, it includes Lemken, Krone, Kuhn, Pöttinger, Rauch and Zunhammer. The application enables farmers to utilise their machinery from various manufacturers more efficiently. Farmers can plan field activities with ease, transfer data via the agrirouter and create documentation automatically. 

Owners of AGCO machines with field task data (TaskDoc Pro) and agronomy or precision ag packages will be able to try out NEXT Machine Management for free until June 30. After the trial period, a license must be purchased. Customers without a field task data service can purchase one to try out NEXT Machine Management.

NEXT Machine Management allows for simple task planning, fast wireless data transfer via agrirouter, allowing compatibility with dozens of other FMISs, real-time display of machinery locations and data, and substantial time savings through automated documentation. The software features a future-oriented design with fully GDPR-compliant data security.
