Deere, Kinze, and Ag Leader announce agreement to integrate tech

John Deere, Kinze Manufacturing, and Ag Leader Technology are working together to make it easier for farmers to integrate equipment and technology on their operations.

Farmers who operate Kinze and Ag Leader planting and display products can now integrate their agronomic data seamlessly into the John Deere Operations Center. The companies have also agreed to resolve all outstanding litigation through an arrangement where John Deere will license planting technology to Kinze and Ag Leader, which ensures users can continue to access True Speed and SureSpeed technologies.

Aaron Wetzel, vice president of production and precision agriculture production systems with John Deere, says the company is proud of its equipment and technology solutions, but customers have choices, and this agreement puts customers first. He says John Deere remains committed to helping all of its customers, including those with mixed fleets, be more productive, profitable, and sustainable in their operations.

Susanne Veatch, president of Kinze, says she’s excited to have True Speed back on the market, and the agreement will benefit the joint farmer customers who utilize the John Deere Operations Center.

Al Myers, president of Ag Leader says being able to connect with other platforms like John Deere Operations Center through AgFiniti allows growers to map and analyze data in one place regardless of equipment color. He says the agreement helps all companies better serve the growing needs of customers.

John Deere and Kinze also announced plans to further technology collaborations.
