AGCO (NYSE: AGCO), a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural machinery and solutions, today announced it is highlighting its commitment to bringing farmers sustainable high-tech solutions by relaunching its vision.

“Our new vision—Sustainable high-tech solutions for farmers feeding the world—better represents our thoughtful approach to helping our farmers and our business continually find better and more sustainable ways to raise the food people need, all around the world,” said Martin Richenhagen, President and Chief Executive Officer of AGCO Corporation. “As the world celebrated the 50th anniversary of Earth Day last month, we felt it was the right time to stress the importance of sustainability in our company’s vision.”

Agriculture is one of the most essential industries in the world. As the population grows to a projected 10 billion people by 2050, the potential impact agriculture can have on the health of our planet is tremendous. As a global leader in agriculture, AGCO has a responsibility to help ensure we make a positive impact for the farmers who use our solutions, the communities they feed and the environment we all share.

AGCO precision agriculture tools help farms and machines run more efficiently with lower inputs and higher yields. Sustainable productivity arises through technology, innovation and integrated solutions to grow more food and deliver higher farm income.

Environmental concerns are also driving society’s perception of agriculture, including animal welfare. AGCO is a market leader for cage-free egg equipment and creates solutions to reduce stress and maximize comfort while maintaining healthy animals and encouraging natural behavior.

In short, AGCO’s sustainable high-tech solutions enable farmers to do more with less.

  • Advanced farm machines require less fuel and need to make fewer passes in the field, reducing compacted soil and increasing soil fertility.
  • Precision technology and agronomic solutions enable farmers to grow and harvest more per acre, making the most of our farmland.
  • Better sprayer technology enables farmers to apply products only where needed, reducing inputs to grow healthy food.
  • More efficient harvesting equipment means more crops are captured in the field, and better grain and seed storage mean more goes to market.
  • Next-generation biosecurity, housing and feeding solutions mean safer, healthier and more productive conditions for swine and poultry.

“We don’t want to stop at meeting the needs of today’s farmers; we must support future generations,” added Eric Hansotia, Chief Operating Officer of AGCO Corporation. “We need to continuously bring to market high-tech solutions to support farmers in producing nutritious food while reducing resource and environmental impacts.”

AGCO RESPONSE TO THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

Mark James

Agriculture is system critical.

With the coronavirus pandemic, our planet is facing an unprecedented modern challenge. Securing our food supply must be a top priority and maintaining access to food is critical in fighting this virus both short and long term.

We recognize the key role that our equipment plays in a sustainable food supply. Our commitment is to keeping production running and inventory open and accessible as long as possible, so farmers everywhere have the tools they need. It means continuing to operate our parts, service and support functions for customers so they can keep feeding the world, whether planting, harvesting or caring for animals. And it means keeping these commitments while protecting the health of our customers, employees and communities.

For our customers and dealers

Farmers and the agricultural supply chain have never been more important. We are doing everything we can to keep our plants, distribution and field support operating normally with minimal disruptions to help farmers grow and harvest the food we all need to survive. From our CEO to every employee across the globe, this is mission critical.

For our employees

The safety and well-being of our employees is our top priority. We are closely following guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other health agencies to protect our employees. We’ve implemented international and domestic travel restrictions, drastically increased our sanitation efforts and implemented remote or staggered shifts to follow social-distancing recommendations, including asking employees that can work from home to do so.

For our communities

We are following and adhering to local regulation and guidance in the communities where we operate. We’re also giving back: our facilities and employees around the globe are helping to address local impacts of COVID-19 as we all combat this pandemic together.

Drying and Heat Treatment with Cimbria’s DANTOASTER

Jonathann Warren

A combination of theoretical know-how and practical experience has made Cimbria a recognized supplier of these heat treatment systems.

The Cimbria Dantoaster is increasingly used as a high capacity low-cost technology for heat treatment and can often be used as an alternative to more energy intensive technologies.

Designed for Flexibility

The design of the Dantoasteris optimized for multiple applications such as high temperature grain drying, sterilization, gelatinization and toasting. The Dantoaster will ensure a value-added end product regardless of whether it is used for production of feed for pigs, cows, mink, chickens, pet food, or in the food industry for products such as breakfast cereals, sprinkles etc.

The Dantoaster has also proven itself as an energy-ecient and compact drying solution for dicult products such as lime stone and manure, just as extremely wet – almost liquid – product can be handled, exploiting the system’s qualities of high capacity and low energy consumption.

Meeting Increasingly Stringent Requirements

Sterilizing raw materials used in food production leads to a thousand-fold reduction in the germ count. This results in a product which is not only much better suited for storage, but also much less prone to the development of mycotoxins. The process enables a manufacturer to meet the increasingly stringent requirements for better methods of storage and product quality.

Toxins In Fodder And Food

Micro-organisms and their waste products in food and animal fodder represent a serious problem for both human and animals. Such problems include salmonella in chickens, aatoxin in dried fruit, and ochratoxin in pig feed. Today, it is already common practice to sterilize large quantities of corn for inclusion in many diferent feed products in order to minimize the risk of sickness occurring in animals during their critical period of growth. Aquaculture is another example of an area that is receiving an ever-increasing amount of attention, since requirements for quality feed also play a vital role here.

All You Need to Know about R-Value in 5 mins

Jonathann Warren

R-Value is a measurement of resistance to heat flow throughout a given thickness of material; the higher the R-Value, the greater the resistance.

It is the overall of an insulation material to resist (retard) heat flow, taking into account both the thermal conductivity (K value) and the thickness of an insulation material. It is used to calculate overall heat transmission coefficients and is expressed as m² ºK/W.

What does R-Value mean to your farm business?
Livestock need an optimal living environment to grow. Structure with Higher R-Value insulation will maintain farm house temperature at a comfortable zoon much better, and maximize energy savings, which brings a better productivity. That’s why GSI building crafted its structure with top heat resistance profile, for example the ceiling and sidewalls with a standard R-Value as high as 12 (higher R value is optional upon customer request).

Thanks to GSI’s superb heat resistance performance, livestock procure optimal living conditions, water and electricity cost will be minimized, and farm owner will enjoy a higher ROI in the long run. Investing in GSI structure is a wise choice.
