Two major precision ag companies recently have created an alliance to develop new precision products for farming. Ag Leader of Ames, IA, with its precision ag software and hardware will collaborate with AutoFarm, Fremont, CA, a company known for precision positioning and intelligent control systems.

One of the first new products developed by the two companies is the Integra display. The Integra, which features a 12.1-in., color, high-definition touch screen, manages all the operation controls in a tractor or vehicle. It includes a built-in steering and guidance system along with an on-screen lightbar. These features make the display an option for growers who want manual guidance but expect to upgrade in the future.

“Built-in manual guidance, full-screen mapping, planter and application control, yield monitoring, real-time data logging, and automated steering make up the core functionality of the new Integra display,” reports John Howard, Ag Leader product manager.

The Integra offers multiple map views to monitor applications. Four video camera inputs also are available on the display. It may be moved from vehicle to vehicle and is compatible with Ag Leader’s InSight and Edge displays.

The Integra display will operate with the new ParaDyme automated steering system with cellular communication for remote diagnostics. Price of the Integra display with Auto-Swath is about $4,750. Detailed pricing is available from Ag Leader dealers.
